Is a homemade salt water wash effective for Blepharitis? The OTC eyelid cleansers are bit for pricey for long term daily use

In brief: Baby shampoo

You can use heat pack over the eye to open up oil gland pores, then use diluted baby shampoo to clean the eye lashes while the eyes are closed.
Nutritionally, drink more fluid, eat omega 3 essential fatty acid (nuts, wild fish, flax seed, or chia seeds) and avoid junk food.
