Skunk Away

Postby Elizabeth » Mon Mar 03, 2014 5:03 pm

Here it is: a way to get skunk smell off of dogs (and, I hope, a chemical smell out of jeans). The source was an NPR interview with a chemist whose dog had a chronic problem with a neighborhood skunk. DD12's dog also found a skunk, so we were able to test the recipe and it does work.

Large quantity recipe:

1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon dishwashing soap

Small quantity recipe:

1/2 cup 3% hydrogen peroxide
1.5 teaspoons baking soda
1 drop dishwashing soap

I sincerely hope NONE of you ever need this!

LOL, Elizabeth! I hope we don't too!

I've been meaning to tell you that my massage therapist recommends lemon pine sol washing for funky textiles. I've used it successfully on towels..
