I remember always hearing about the tomato juice bath for removing skunk stench, although no one said it worked very well. Now, here’s the modern version of skunk smell removal treatment:
- 1 quart 3 percent hydrogen peroxide
- 1/4 cup sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
- 1 teaspoon liquid detergent
Mix and bathe affected person or pet for about five minutes. Rinse with plain water. Repeat if necessary. Don’t keep this mixture around; instead mix fresh when needed. Caution:
It may result in bleaching…“I have heard of one black Labrador retriever that was chocolate colored after this treatment.�?
Maybe it also works to get the grey out?
Rejected idea: skunk cabbage as photo of the day—instead, poke berries.
