I was in desperate need of a skunk smell remover after our dog Cooper was sprayed by a skunk eating birdseed one evening at our bird feeder. I found this recipe on another web site. We used it on him and I was quite surprised how well it worked. I am posting it here for safekeeping incase it happens again. Cooper did not like the cold shampoo mixture but at this point, he had no chose, it was either this or he sleeps in the garage.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 2 tablespoons liquid dish soap
- 1Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, the mix will foam up quite a bit.
- 2Wash the dog with the foam while it is still foaming.
- 3The mixture also works for clothes, humans and unlucky cats.
- 4The mixture makes an oxygen type shampoo which reacts with the thiols in the skunk stink to neutralize the odor.
- 5You are not able to store the mixture. If the foam sits around, it loose its efficacy, the oxygen boils off, so use a fresh batch each time.
