    Hello, Ok i have a white showgirl, I usually use tear drop cleaner for poodles on her feet feathers , but she spilled her water over night and now they are just to yellow, I need some suggestions on what to try to make them white again. Home remedies would be great, if they sell something for that i would love to know. [​IMG]
    Thanks, Shay

    Woolite is a liquid laundry detergent used for delicate fabrics because it is very gentle and won't fade fabrics or cause stretching.

    A couple drops of Mrs.Wrights Laundry Bluing in her bath with brighten her white color.

    Too many drops will turn her blue.

    Seriously, be careful with the blueing! It works great, but my friend had a purple silkie for a while when she didn't use the right dilution. [​IMG]
