Though this blueing agent is probably the same as is used in dog shampoos that whiten it would make me uncomfortable using on my dogs. I don't use the whitening shampoo either.  Just an opinion.

I'm with you on this, Vita. I cannot imagine using a laundry product on my baby. I would think different safety standards would apply for a shampoo for use on a live animal versus a laundry product.

Ditto. Anything that is marketed as a shampoo, even for dogs, has to be tested for safety in case it gets into the eyes. Even though, as Vita says, it's probably the same thing that goes into a whitening shampoo, why take a chance? You can get whitening shampoos from any Pet Store (Snowy Coat works well). I think "old ladies" used to use blueing on their hair because nothing else was available. Heck, in those days people used to use baby oil and iodine instead of a sunscreen!

What about bluing for hair? I belive my mother in law uses something in a silver and pink bottle to keep her white hair very white! I haven't looked yet, but the comment from Vita got me thinking. I will look at the store and post if I find something.

I know Matrix makes a "blue" conditioner that is suppoed to mask the yellow brassiness in blond/bleached hair; maybe it would work if you were to diluted it with water and make a rinse out of it ???????
