Plus another question while I'm still posting. The hair around her eyes is very stiff. She has black around her eyes so you can't see any tear satins but would tear stain treatments help this problem?
Thank you all so much

He also get's hard hairs around his eye's I just wipe them with a facecloth. I recently bought a soft human toothbrush and some baby shampoo to clean the hair around his eye's, then I just give him a quick blast with the dryer. Seem's to clean him up really well...He doesn't stay that way for long though LOL
I think I have the scruffiest Tzu ever. I spend ages grooming him every morning and within 30 min's he look's like the Littlest Hobo. He look's like he has just crawled out of a trash can. Seriously!
It amazes me how neat most of the Tzu's on here look. Mine's just a big Scruff but I love him to death.

Boric acid is not the same as Borax. Borax is a salt formed from Boric Acid and when Borax is combined with hot water some of the water molecules are converted to Hydrogen peroxide and these are what whiten. Borax is an alkaline and has a lot of uses other than cleaning.
Probably more information than you wanted to know, but "Know it alls" just can't help it, they are obsessed with information.LOL

Beet pulp in the food can indeed contribute to staining (we used to avoid it for the black poodles as it gave them a reddish cast), as can a high mineral count in your tap water. If the staining is caused by red yeast, Angel's Eyes will help on both counts.
I have been mixing boric acid powder 50/50 with cornstarch and using it to whiten for years and I know it DOES work. We have pounds of the stuff because my husband uses it at work. He says you can get it in the pharmacy department at drugstores and some grocery stores.
We clean eyes every day by dropping in some artificial tears, wiping with a cotton ball, combing out the facial fall and using a flea comb to get the eye boogers. Spa Lavish has a facial wash that is just dandy if they've got themselves especially messy with something (both mine like to dig and snuff).
