Skunks are cute when they’re wobbling around in the backyard, happily munching and minding their own business. Unfortunately, sometimes Fido gets a little too close and the entire household has to pay for his mistake. Here is a tried and true recipe (don’t ask us how we know it works!) for removing Pepe Le Pew’s stench . . .
1 bottle hydrogen peroxide
1/2 bottle water about a cup or so
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon dog shampoo or Dawn Dish Detergent
Mix first 2 ingredients, add remaining ingredients. Pour into a squirt bottle/sprayer. (We used a leftover Poland Spring Water bottle. Use the entire solution, do not get in your pets eyes or nose. Allow to set up to 10 minutes, working the solution into his fur with your fingers.
This works like Magic!
To Remove Smells from Patios, Decks or exterior Siding, spray the area liberally with Plain white vinegar, let it set a few minutes, then hose off with water.
