If you have been on outdoor excursions with your dog, then there is a chance your dog could get sprayed by a skunk.  Do you know how to get that skunk odor remover out without using the old wives tale involving tomato juice?  What a mess that is!  Instead, follow these tips on ways to rid the skunk smell, before your dog stinks up the entire house.

The first step is to check your canine’s eyes.  Sometimes the skunk spray may affect the eyes.  If they look irritated or red, rinse them out thoroughly.  Once you have done that then it is time to start making the mix that will get rid of that awful stench.

Mix together one-quarter cup of baking soda, one teaspoon of liquid dish washing soap and one quart of three percent hydrogen peroxide.  While wearing rubber gloves, start washing your dog with this immediately.  Be sure to be careful that you do not get any of this in your dog’s eyes.  If these are products you do not wish to use, then you may use water diluted vinegar.  It works well too!

Once the initial rub into the fur is complete, rinse this concoction out.  Make sure you get all the fur and rinse it out thoroughly.  You do not want any traces of the smell or this mixture left behind.

Once this happens, rinse your dog with your regular dog shampoo and voila.  The skunk smell should be gone.
