I was wondering if the Distilled Water would help the beard stains. Anyone know?

Bad Eye Staining

This picture is when the staining was really bad. Sorry about the white eye picture. The color was really pink in the area of the head, the color pink was very noticeable outside.

Jack's eye staining going away. You can still see traces of the stains.

I was quite surprised, Linda, but distilled water DOES WORK for the beard stains!! Beau doesn't have problems with tear staining around his eyes (because he is black around his eyes). But, I had noticed a lot of staining on his beard, around his mouth last fall. It takes months, but slowly but surely the beard staining disappeared!! He's nice and white again!! I changed to distilled water in September or October when I got an automatic water dish (which I love) and that's the only water he drinks. Of course, there are still puddles . . . But, it's definitely worth a try. Distilled water only costs about $1 per gallon, and so, it's a cheap fix -- if you are patient!

I think that the Angel eyes is brilliant at getting rid of the staining in the first instance,so use it until it has cleared up, then use all the preventative methods.But every thing takes a time to work.If you don't mind trimming it off,that helps,also I find the old corn starch a good method,as it stop the wetness from the eyes drying on the fur,which causes the problem,but you have to start with a clean area first.Who ever comes up with a natural fail safe way to rid dogs and cats from tear staining will become a millionaire!So back to the drawing board!!

One of the ways you can get rid of beard/water stains is by going to a water bottle. all 4 of mine drink from a water bottle.

We are grain free here. Dexter is the one with the beard stains, Jack looks great. But, Jack has the eye stains. You can't see the stains on Dexter due to the black hair. I am giving the Distilled Water a try. I will be trimming some of the stained beard off soon from Dexter. Maybe the Distilled water will help both problems...we will see.

Oh! I would rather not use the water bottle method until I try the Distilled Water. I could probably use the water bottle method in the Winter, I am just afraid the boys do not get enough water in the Summer. On to the experiment of Distilled Water for Beard Stains.
