  1. I have never noticed this trick listed. When I am about to bathe my Maltese, I rub Vaseline into any stained areas (and the “eye boogers”) about an hour before. It softens them so that it’s not so hard to grasp or comb them out, making it less painful/stressful for the animal. This also works well (she does play outside) when anything like a burr or other foreign thing gets caught in her fur (she gets them in the corners of her mouth) to remove them painlessly.
