If you live out in the country, or maybe just have some really curious or unlucky pets, you might have some experience with skunk spray. It can be unbearable for you (imagine how your dog feels!) and it can seem impossible to get rid of- no matter how many tomato baths you give your pooch. However, there are some solutions! Check out this post by Jill Winger at The Prairie Homestead for her de-skunking recipe:
- 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide (this is the kind you find in the first aid section of your average grocery store. It’s very cheap.)
- 1/4 cup Baking Soda
- 1-2 drops of liquid dish soap (optional)
- Rubber Gloves (optional, but highly recommended…)
Put on your gloves and gather everything you will need. Once you mix the ingredients, the solution must be used immediately, so there won’t be any time to go searching for the dog, etc!
