vinegar cornstarch and lemon juice, make it into a paste.  wash them, put it on their white parts, and then let it sit 10 minutes.  wash the areas you applied it to again.  it helps keep them moisturized if you use a cream rinse when you do this, because the cornstarch can make them a little dry, if they're prone to it.

the one i put is a tip from an akita breeder / shower and she uses it on all her akitas with white before they go in the ring.  i use it too, it works really well, and is so inexpensive!

Lola got a smoked beef bone yesterday and her legs are stained pretty much from the elbow down. She's messy. LOL

schelmischekit ty, Thanks for the 'recipe' I think I'm going to give it a try on her legs. I wonder though if that would work on tear stains too? Lola has a decent tear stain on her un-masked eye. It drives me crazy, but nothing I've tried even budges it at all. I was told by a maltese breeder to use a bleach mixture.. No way I'm putting bleach anywhere near her eye. This mixture sounds much safer, although Of course I'd be careful and not to apply anything too close to her eye.

it would probably work, i'd use a q-tip or something to put it on though, and make sure she doesn't rub it into her eyes. the vinegar may make her eyes water, though.  here's a good solution to use for tear stains.

Milk of Magnesia, corn starch and peroxide (20 volume to 40 volume)

    Use equal volume of MOM and peroxide, and then use the corn starch to make a good paste of this; put on and work well into the stained area and let dry overnight. Wash out, CONDITION WELL. Keep doing this for several days until tear staining is gone, although I would recommend skipping a day or two between applications if possible. I also like to use a few drops of Nexus KerapHix in this mixture to help with conditioning.

    This MOM formula is my personal preference when I do need to remove tearstain color from the face of my dogs.  It works quite well overnight.

Counseling Clients:

Clients will naturally ask for advice regarding coat condition and general grooming problems, one of which is tear stains on white coated dogs. Suggest your customer provide bottled water only (preferably distilled) for his/her pet....seems mineral content in tap water may contribute to staining. Red dyes in some dog foods may also be a contributing factor. In addition to altering the dog's intake, it may be beneficial to use a tear stain preparation and/or to dab a little cornstarch on the 'tear path' in order to keep the area dry.
