Skunk Deodorizer

I can honestly say that in the past 5 years of running this website I've never featured a recipe for... skunk odor remover! And thankfully I didn't need to mix any up this weekend but a run in with a skunk during some errands made me look up the best 'odor deodorizer' I could find. This one seems to be the most popular and featured on a dozen of the most promising sites I researched.

The little guy that stalked me during one of my errands - yes in the day time and yes in the rain!

Skunk Deodorizer

1 quart hydrogen peroxide (3%)
1/4 c baking soda
1 t liquid soap - laundry or dish

Mix and use with a wash cloth to wipe down the pet or skin. For clothing and dark haired animals be warned that peroxide fades and causes 'red' hair or highlights.

  1. Hahaha. I'm laughing because I just did a blog about that very subject: http://anamericanhomemaker.blogspot.com/2011/07/removing-refrigerator-odors.html

    I'm saving your recipe. If you've ever hit a skunk at night, you know that the smell gets all under your car and wafts up into the car. It could be sprayed underneath to help neutralize the smell.


Thank You so much for your comment!
