Some of you have had the misfortune of your Pets getting skunked, and we have found the BEST remedy for you to get rid of that aweful Skunk smell: One of my customers shared this with me, and I wanted to pass it on, since this is the season for this:
You will need:
A clean plastic bucket in which to mix ingredients
1 qt of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (usually sold in pint bottles, so you will need two, use of other strength is not recommended)
1/4 cup of Baking Soda do not use washing soda which is much stronger, and will burn your dog's skin.)
1 to 2 tsp. of liquid detergent ( Soft soap and Ivory liquid are preferred)
HOW TO USE:
Apply to dry dog, working well into fur. KEEP AWAY FROM DOGS/ HUMAN EYES. Let stand about 5 minutes, then rinse well with tepid water, repeat if necessary. DO NOT STORE THIS MIXTURE, IT LOSES ITS EFFECTIVENESS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY IT RELEASES OXYGEN GAS AND THE CONTAINER COULD EXPLODE. This may bleach the dog's hair, ( but its better than the smell). And Remember, the sooner you deal with the skunking, the better, as over time the smell sets and is harder to eliminate. Do not shampoo your dog first.
