Making and using eyewashes seems to be a lost remedy. I went into a pharmacy and asked the pharmicist himself where I could find an eyecup. The man looked at me totally puzzled and asked, "What's it for?". Can you believe it?
Making your own eyewash is as simple as making a cup of chamomile tea. Seriously! Chamomile is antifungal and can even help pinkeye. It's very soothing whether you have either allergy eyes or simply tired eyes.
Just make a cup of chamomile tea and let it cool. One tip is to always use distilled water and a sterile cup for eyewashes to avoid any bacteria. One your tea is cool, dip in a couple cotton balls and leave on your closed eyelids for at least 10 minutes. Even easier is to use the cooled teabags themselves right over your eyes!
Of course you can always do a wash like Tony shows you in the video below...
