Liza, if I were as lucky as you ;) I would not wash his face unless it were dirty. If it's just some eye boogies, I would just remove those with my fingers, and then brush or comb his face to remove any dried pieces.

I have to wash Poppy's face daily, as he is staining very bad.

HUGz! Jules

No worries; they're normal. I believe it's what happens when the debris from inside the eye gets flushed out by the tears, it clumps in the corners. I would wash his face every so often, though, just so he gets used to it. Especially if he starts to stain at some point.
