Get Rid of Skunk Spray Smell on Your Dog With This Home Made Recipe Using Household Products

What do you do if your dog gets sprayed by a skunk to get rid of the smell? Jeanne and I were talking about that on this morning’s show, and I mentioned a simple home remedy my dad had found somewhere that he has successfully used; so I made a phone call and got the recipe to share.

While there are many other remedies, such as using tomato juice, beer, or even commercial products; this seems to be the winner in neutralizing the smell of a skunk on your dog. Here’s what you’ll need to make your skunk smell remover:

  • 1 Quart 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 1/4 Cup of Baking Soda
  • 1-2 Teaspoons of Liquid Dish Soap
  • Large Plastic Container for Mixing (Not a Metal Container)

Bathe your dog in the solution, making sure to keep it out of their eyes. After about 5 minutes (or when the scent is reduced), rinse the dog’s fur, and the scent should be gone.

You should avoid putting the mixture in a closed container, as the chemical reaction can cause a closed bottle to explode. It is worth noting that the solution does lose its potency relatively quickly, so don’t mix the ingredients until you need them. If you have a regular issue or concern with skunk sprays, my personal recommendation would be to build a kit with all the ingredients you need. Just be sure to double-check your hydrogen peroxide hasn’t expired by the time you need it.
