I have been using the 3% peroxide and a VERY small amount of Desitin (diaper ointment) on Brink's tear staining. WHEN I keep up with it, this process seems to work. It by no means makes it perfect, but the combination of the peroxide whitening, and the Desitin keeping the moisture in check seems to work for him. (the Desitin works better than cornstarch for me...and I like it because it is easier to keep out of his eyes than the powdery stuff) Anyway, even though it is not A LOT of trouble to do both, I was wondering why the process could not be combined into one product? The amount of the ointment that I use is VERY minimal, otherwise it gets glumpy-but tonight I was thinking about how nice it would be if the TWO were combined so that while the Desitin was keeping the new moisture away, it was also helping to whiten the stains that were already there from NOT keeping up with it every day. Does this make sense or am I rambling?
Is there are product like this? It seems like I have heard of everything to help with tearstains. The only thing that sounds remotely similiar to this that I can think of is the MOM routine, but you can't leave that on can you? And isn't it damaging to the hair? So far, I haven't noticed any difference in his hair with my two working products. MUCH better than the diamond eye, which I thought REALLY dried his face hair out. The Desitin must be cleaned before re-applying the next day, otherwise it really clumps up, but I have found that when I brush on the peroxide with a toothbrush, it cleans up what is already there.
Again, I feel like I am rambling. But, just an idea that I had...

I'll have to try it. I hate the fishy smell of real Desitin. I love Walmart, too. You hear all sorts of awful things about them recently, but you can't beat the pricing. I even get Lady's insulin & syringes (she's diabetic) from their pharmacy and save a ton of $$$)

The walmart brand smells, but not as strong as the real stuff.
