Recipe for Getting Rid of Skunk Odor

Pets or People

Step 1

Mix 1 quart 3-percent hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 tsp. liquid dishwashing soap in a plastic spray bottle. This amount is enough for a small dog; double or triple the batch for larger pets or a person.

Step 2

Spray your pet or person thoroughly with the mixture.

Step 3

Rub your pet or person with your gloved hands for five minutes to allow the spray to saturate.

Step 4

Rinse your pet or person well. If the smell is not gone, repeat steps 1 through 3.

House and Other Objects

Step 1

Mix 1 cup bleach and 1 quart water in a plastic spray bottle.

Step 2

Apply the bleach solution to an inconspicuous area to test for colorfastness of house or object.

Step 3

Spray the mixture on the house or other object, thoroughly saturating the area the skunk sprayed.

Step 4

Wait for the area to dry. Repeat steps 1 and 3 if the smell is not gone.

Lawn

Step 1

Mix 1 gallon white distilled vinegar and 1 cup liquid dishwasher detergent in a bucket.

Step 2

Pour the mixture into a backpack garden sprayer.
