So Your Dog Got Sprayed By a Skunk??
The following is a recipe for a mixture that is amazing at removing skunk
smell. The important thing is to use it BEFORE washing the dog with shampoo,
tomato juice or even plain water, these tend to "set" the skunk smell on the
dog and make it more difficult to remove.
· 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
· 1/4 cup baking soda
· 2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid
Depending on the size of the dog, you may need to double or even quadruple
this recipe. Mix everything together in a large bottle or small pail then
apply to the dog, massaging it in well and making sure to get it right down to
the skin. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then rinse thoroughly. You may still
detect a slight skunk odor while the dog is wet but it should smell MUCH
better once dry!
If there is any left-over solution, just pour it down the drain as the
reaction between the peroxide and baking soda does not last very long.
Whatever you do, do not try to bottle it and save it for next time, the
chemical reaction that occurs can cause the container to explode!
