The scent of a skunk can be irritating, not to mention
powerfully malodorous. Common
antidotes like tomato juice, vinegar, or regular shampoo just
may not do the best job.
· 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
· 1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
· 1 teaspoon liquid dish soap
Wet your pet down and work the mixture through the pet's
hair. Leave on for three to four
minutes and rinse. Be sure to throw away any excess
This recipe works great. In Warm weather you could rub it
into his entire body out in the yard, wait the 3-4 minutes and
then bring your pup inside to rinse and then shampoo.
There will be no skunk smell in the house, and only a very
slight suggestion of the smell around his eyes where you
can not get close. For this area you should use a wash cloth
to get as close as possible.
