When I say we have included almost every kind of recipe in the Dining on a Dime Cookbook, I’m not joking! We’ve even included a really good and easy homemade skunk smell remover recipe, which actually works. It’s amazing how easily dogs get into mischief and get sprayed by a skunk. Maybe someone in your family stumbled across a skunk and now you want to remove the skunk odor. This recipe will definitely do the trick!
I thought with summer here and with many of us spending more and more time outside some of you might end up needing a good skunk smell remover! It might even be wise to take the ingredients with you on your picnics or camping trips, although these are basic ingredients and you may have them with you anyway.
My neighbor has a cabin by a lake and had to use this recipe about four times last year alone when a skunk made a nest under her porch. Each time she uses this homemade skunk smell remover she gets excited and calls me to let me know how great it worked once again. We hear people say over and over again how great this recipe and that it REALLY works!
Just for the record, things like tomato juice, vinegar, spraying with lemon, citrus, perfume or Febreze almost never work as skunk smell removers. If you don’t want to use the peroxide recipe you can soak down the person or animal with vinegar and dishsoap but this doesn’t work nearly as well as the skunk odor remover and honestly who wants to smell that skunk stink for days on end!
Skunk Smell Remover
1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 tsp. dish detergent
Sponge on and let dry. Safe for use on cats and dogs. If you need to double or triple this recipe you can easily do it. Do not use on clothes.
