Make Your Own Skunk Odor Remover

My neighbor's dogs seem to just adore those striped kitties. After one particularly nasty run in with a skunk, we had to abandon their house and let it air out. There is nothing quite like the aroma of a skunk! So, today my grandmother gave me this recipe. I am posting it here so it will be handy the next time Lynette's doggies get all stinky.

1 quart Hydrogen Peroxide

1/2 cup Baking Soda

1 Tablespoon liquid dish soap

Mix all ingredients well in a large, clean bucket. Take a large sponge, soak it, and thoroughly saturate your pet with the mixture. Keep the solution away from your pet's eyes, mouth, and nose.

After you've covered your pet with the solution, being sure to really work it down into his coat and skin, then rinse with warm water.

According to grandma, this will do the trick!

Yes, it surely does work! Also works for cat urine, too. Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way! said...

Tomato juice also works wonders. I learned that too, the hard way.

Thanks Nessa, we need to was Jennifer's car in it. She hit one she said was as big as a dog...and it broke her car. Now when she is driving and the engine gets warm....well you know!
