Eyelid Cleansers

Has anyone tried using TheraTears SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser?
It looks like it may work well in keeping the eyelids clean.

I'm sure this is an excellent product, but many people find Johnston's Baby Shampoo to be an excellent eye lid and eye margin cleaner. Use a Q-Tip to apply and gently scrub.

Does the site have a diagram on how to properly use the Q-Tip?
Is one supposed to lift the upper lid and gently rub the Q-Tip with the shampoo on it?
Thanks

We don't have such illustrations, but you are correct. Lift the lid away from the eye and use Q-Tip dipped in a solution of water and baby shampoo to clean the margin (edge) of each lid. Rinse and repeat.

The margin edge being the inside of the lid that touches the eye itself?

Yes, the margin is the edge of the eye lid that is the point where the outer lid meets the inner lid and will be just below the eye lashes.
