Skunk Spray Remedy

Tis the season for skunk sprays.  If your pet gets sprayed this season leave them outside for a few hours.  The smell will dramatically subside.

 

Once you can handle the stench, it’s time for Fido’s bath.  No more tomato soup!!

 

Mix these simple ingredients in a bucket:

*quart of hydrogen peroxide

*1/4 cup baking soda

*1 tablespoon dish soap (a gentle soap, not a harsh grease removing type)

 

Double this recipe if you have a larger breed dog.  

 

Make sure you wear gloves, and get scrubbing.  Make sure you get down into the fur, but be careful around the eye area.  Let it sit for a few minutes, rinse, and repeat until the smell is gone, or manageable.  Make sure you rinse your pet really well with lukewarm water after you are done.

 

DO NOT store any leftover cleaning solution as the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda react chemically and your container could explode.  Don’t believe me?  Check out Marissa’s science experiment here.

 

Hopefully you’ll never have to try this recipe out, but best of luck if you do!!
