I got this homemade tear stain remover idea from a website (and I can't remember which one anymore). I tried it yesterday because the day before I noticed that Fendi's tear stains were really bad that day--usually her face is ok, but for some reason it was really bad the day before. I did take pictures of it. Yesterday I mixed 1/2 peroxide and 1/2 milk of magnesia and added cornstarch until it was paste and applied on her face at night. This morning I washed it off with soap and water and here is the difference:


Before


After


So my question is, does anyone have any idea how often I'm supposed to apply the paste on her? She really doesn't like the paste. She tries to shake it off, but it hardens after awhile so she doesn't have much luck.

WOW! You used only 1/2 cornstarch and 1/2 milk of magnesia and then added cornstarch to make paste?

Please let us know.

Fendi looks great.

enJOY!

Looks great...but I thought there was another ingredient in that mix? Isn't that the "MOM" method?
If so, I think it is supposed to be very drying...so be sure to condition well.
Cute pup!

Yes that is 2/3s of the MOM method... the other 1/3 is the drying part.

That is why I am so impressed if she got those results leaving out the other third.

enJOY!

Yes there is another ingredient. I think it is Hydrogen peroxide. I have not used this in a long time. When I did, I mixed Salon Care Creme developer 20 volume from Sally beauty supply with the corn starch and milk of magnesia. What it does is bleach the rust stain out of the hair. It's like when you bleach your own hair.

Would the smell of the developer bleach burn their eyes? From the fumes?

The MOM recipe isn't pure bleach ..no odor or fumes.
HOWEVER, it will dry the hair out as it does contain peroxide
(if you add the third ingredient). I've never heard of using it
with just the Milk of Magnesia and cornstarch. Not sure why
that would work. Maybe it just cleans the area? Anyone else
tried it?
P.S. In the original recipe it's medicinal peroxide, not hair
peroxide as the third ingredient.

It never had bothered Micro or Bella but it is AWFULLY drying to the hair so make sure you condition VERY well before and after many times. I used it to lighten their tear stains after using the Angels Eyes.

enJOY!

Sooooooo terribly sorry to confuse everyone. Yes it is the MOM method, and it WAS peroxide. I accidently typed that I added cornstarch TWICE when in fact it was 1/2 peroxide, 1/2 milk of magnesia and cornstarch until it was pasty.

I did hear that it was drying and I did condition. Thanks for everyone's comments and concern.

And yes, I used medicinal peroxide, not creme developer. To be honest, I didn't think of using hair developer.
