Exclamation what's the ULTIMATE whitener?!?!

i need advice on the BEST products out there! my black and white paint seems to get absolutley dingy with her 4 tall stockings and her abundance of white splashes! I usually use blue-ing shampoos but that doesnt seem to really get her sparkling white like i'd like her! her mane is whats real bad right now due to the constant rolling like a donkey. i'm a cosmetologist so i thought maybe like powdered bleach and some 30 developer might help, but that sounds a bit dangerous! i've also heard of making a cornstarch paste but does that really work?

I have a white pony, and the best i've ever used is Quick Silver.

It comes out purple, and if its on the horse too long it will turn the horse purple too O.O

So make sure you rinse really good lol. And always wet the horse down before you use it, that will also dye your horse purple really fast haha.

We use Show Paste Shampoo. We get it from Fleet Farm. If you have a store that sells livestock/cattle supplies, they should have something in their cattle section like it. People use it to whiten cattle before a sale or auction.

Another product you could try is Ajax with bleach dish soap.

I like Quicksilver shampoo, Cowboy Magic Green Out if needed, Healing Tree Products W.O.W. if needed and then I put the finishing touches on with Roux Fanci Full in Ultra White Minx or White Minx, whichever is in stock at the beauty supply. IT IS AWESOME for Manes and Tails and can be used all over if they are really stained.

Oh yeah, and Mrs. Stewart's Laundry Bluing diluted in warm water is another good one.

I usually bathe with Quicksilver, use one of the despotter if I need too, give a "hot oil" treatment with Kolestral conditioner and then finish up with Roux. I also feed Cheval International's White as Snow supplement, makes them downright irridescent!

The barn I am at is full of grey Arabians. Ms. Jean has loads of experience in getting tails/manes snow white. She told me to wash Biscuit's tail in Palmolive really good, rinse then use Oxyclean Spray, rinse, then the purple shampoo and leave that in for 10 minutes and then rinse out. I did what she said and Biscuit's tail came out pretty darn sparkly. His tail is more flaxen than white as is his mane but it really took the dirt/yellow out!

Use any sudsing shampoo & add bluing, it's what is in all whitening shampoos.

I use the Mane and Tail kind. It's always worked well for me.
