At-Home Skunk Remedy:

NOTE: This at-home skunk rinse remedy must be made FRESH, right before you apply it to your pets, otherwise it will not be effective.

In a plastic bucket, mix well the following ingredients:

  • 1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide

  • 1/4 cup of baking soda

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid soap

For large breed dogs, you may need to double, triple, or even quadruple the mixture.

If you have any cuts on your hands, you may want to wear latex gloves as hydrogen peroxide can sting.

Do not wet down your pet prior to using this mixture. Apply the mixture to your pet's dry coat starting at their collar and working back towards their tail. Make sure to work the solution deep into their fur. Do not pour the solution near their eyes, as hydrogen peroxide can burn them. If your pet was sprayed in the faced, use a sponge or wash cloth to apply the solution to their head, being very careful to avoid their eyes.

Leave the solution on for about 5 minutes or until the odor is gone. Thoroughly rinse your pet with tepid tap water. When rinsing their head area, keep your pet's chin tilted upward so the solution does not run down into their eyes.

 

You may need to repeat the lather and rinse process up to three times.

 

Pour any remaining solution down the drain with running water. NEVER store pre-mixed solution in a closed bottle, sprayer, etc. Pressure will build up and can cause the container to burst.
