Shampoo for white face markings?

I'm looking for a shampoo that will brighten Fancy's white blaze. It's like, yellow-ish right now and I want it shiny white (when I give her a bath when it gets warmer, obviously.) Anyone know of a shampoo that is safe for her face that will brighten the white? Or even just a shampoo that won't burn her eyes that I can use on her face? I'm not saying that I wouldn't avoid her eyes, but if any got into her eyes I wouldn't want to hurt her. I am consider buying corona shampoo, and maybe I could just use like a drop in lots of water to clean her face? I don't know :P Thanks!

Take any horse shampoo and add Mrs. Smith laundry bluing, it's sold in most grocery stores with the laundry detergent and add that to your shampoo. Rub the blued up shampoo into your horse's white spot, scrub it in good and let it sit on there for about 2 minutes, no longer and rinse. All the white will be snow white. Shampoos like Quick Silver will do the same thing, but the bluing is the main ingredient, at a higher price.

I always use baby shampoo. Like, shampoo/conditioner that is meant to be used on human babies. It is gentle and gets the job done IMO. I use it every time I bathe a horse and I feel like it brightens up the white markings! Good luck! Hope the weather gets warm for you soon! (We have been in the high 60s-low 70s where I live. It has been sooooo nice)

Horse shampoo & baby shampoo are very similiar, both are not tearing, I tested the theory (not on purpose either!), I got a big glop of it in my eye, no tears!
