Just a few feet from the front door.. our dog got nailed by Pepe Le Pew... again. I thought I would share this recipe that we've tried (and it works pretty decent) to remove skunk stench. Do not get it into their eyes, mouth, ears!!!!!!
This mixture does not keep, and do not put it into a closed container (it will fizz a little... and blow up a sealed container.) Mix it in a bowl and (with rubber gloves on) apply it to the dog. It may cause the fur to lighten in color where it is used. Apply and let it sit for 5 minutes and then rinse off.
1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
2 teaspoons mild dish liquid
Should you attempt tomato juice (which does not work as well.. it helps, but even after several applications and 1/2 a bottle of dog shampoo he still stank.. and then so did I).. I found that a watering can with the nozzle taken off makes it easier to hold the leash and direct the juice better.
Currently I am making a list of detergents that do not seem to be able to de-stink clothes. Tide, Era, oxyclean, Purex, Arm & Hammer...... don't work. I had better luck with baking soda and then another wash with distilled vinegar.
Thankfully I was wearing my husband's fleece...
