    I use a clean sponge and warm water.

    Daytona gets stuff around her eyes a lot (she's a bit messy!), so I usually just get a wet towel, & a face brush.

    We get a pack of washcloths from a discount store and use them in the barn for things such as this. We use warm water and wash faces, eyes, udders, or behinds - whatever needs doing. You can use NO MORE TEARS shampoo if you need a mild soap.

    I use a lightly damp sponge for crusties etc and then use a soft brush, stroking down (so they close eye when your going over it)

    I have always found that human eye wash or optrex is great is washed out with it or even put on a cotton wool piece and squeezed over the eye, eye ointments for humans are very good as well, I had a loan horse a while back that got an eye infection from a fly bite and this cleared it up in about 2 days. And made him happier too

    I agree with the oil comment...I will usually dab on a bit of baby oil, do the rest of my grooming, then come back at the end with a warm wet washcloth. Usually comes off with minimal rubbing.
