Default Mythbusters Skunk Remedy

The Mythbusters once tried every commercial remedy they could find and the old tomato juice remedy. None of them worked very well, if at all.

As another poster said, the following remedy works every time.

Skunk remedy

1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap

Sponge on and let soak for a few minutes and then rinse off.

Good luck.

I'm not lying to ya Jo, the super duper secret recipe works every time. This has been passed down from one smelly dog owner to the next for generations in my family. In my grandfather's native land of Hungry, they even used this recipe with much success on women. I guess in those days hygiene was not a big factor.

LOL! OK, that has me almost crying it is so funny. I think my weird sense of humor may have gone off the deepend.

Good luck with the pup; eventually, neither of you will smell it anymore. This is how i learned not to spotlight rabbits as a youth. It is remarkably hard to tell the difference in eyeshine. DOH!

Thanks for asking about Roscoe guys.

I used the Natures Miracle yesterday and it helped a lot. At least He smells like a skunk now instead of some kind of WMD. I didnít try the Home remedy yet since I wasnít sure about mixing the two.

I checked with Roscoeís vet today and they gave me the same peroxide formula. I'm going to use it on Him tonight.

I didnít ask them about using it on my girlfriend.

You should of just dropped him off at a kennel for a few days. Let them deal with it.
When in doubt, pass the buck.

So I just did the peroxide treatment on Roscoe. I can see ho this could could work great. It stripes all the oils out. Including my hands. Burned in all the little cuts too. Half way through I remember the Vet tech saying to use gloves. Opps.

Any way Iíll have to let the GF say if the smellís better; Iím immune now

Bleached him about two shades lighter, but thatís OK, Heís a surfer dog now.
