    I finally am going to try the equal parts of Hydrogen peroxide with MOM with enough starch to make a paste. I applied it to not only Orion's tear stains..but also Vegas. I am now officially the most hated human in the house. Orion's tear stains are horrible. But she is such a PITA..I was afraid of getting the mixture into her eyes. Round one went fairly smoothly.

    The only reason I did not post the peroxide mixed with milk of mag was I never used it myself and wonder about combining the two ingredients together.

    I am looking very forward to seeing some pics one week from today! Got is missy??? @Libra926

    @desertskybulldogs
    The book I got the info from suggests twice daily. There is no way I can do all I do in the morning, plus apply this mixture...wait for it to dry AND brush it off. So...maybe two weeks. I did take a before photo of her. I need to figure out her chin. The soup...although works great for slimming down the chub, doesn't do well on the white baby's face. She manages to get tomato on top of her head.
    Do you make up the mixture each time...or does it store well mixed up? I guess I will find out tomorrow.
    I have no idea how you manage it all. I can barely feed myself when dealing with the two babies. I SUCK at multi-tasking.

    Have Noah film you doing the paste on the dogs. I want to know how it looks. If I have it too thick. I need guidance from the expert.

    I noticed you made sure to say "dont let the powder poof in their eyes" when suggesting the Gold Bond or Cornstarch powder to keep dry...I always recommend buying a set of the plastic picnic ketchup / mustard containers. You can get them cheap at Walmart or the dollar store. The pointed tip helps get the powder right in the wrinkle and no where else We use Gold Bond a lot in the tail pocket too.

    Great idea!
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Anonymous

    Ok..I've been doing the concoction that I described. 1/2 hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 MOM and enough cornstarch to create a paste. Here is my problem. I don't have to wait for it to dry. Orion will find a way to rub it off. (it may be too pasty) I've found it on the couch, carpet, blanket and the wall) Not only that, she is like Buddy the Elf and she eats the stuff off my finger faster than I can get it onto her face. But... I'm still doing it.
