This morning on my ride in, I had the pleasure of sitting in front of a man who was talking about how his dog got sprayed by a skunk. He was saying how he kept dumping V8 on the poor dog and the smell wasn't coming out. Well, first of all buddy, the old remedy is tomato paste... NOT V8 Tomato Juice! Big difference. However, I will say this, my dog has been sprayed plenty of times by skunks and this concoction has never failed me! It even got the smell out of her brand new Coach Collar (Thank GOD!)
Combine these ingredients in a large bowl:
1/4 cup of Baking Soda
2 tsp of Dawn Dish Soap
2 Pints of Hydrogen Peroxide
Mix to form a liquidy paste.
(If you have a large dog, double this or you can do like me and just dump these ingredients into a bowl guesstimating until you have the right consistency in a frantic state because you're dog is stinking up your house and you just want the smell to go away! Either way works just fine.)
Slather on dog (avoid eyes and nose). If fizzing happens, it means it's doing it's magic so let it sit for 5 minutes. Rinse off dog and repeat the process. You may be thinking that the peroxide will discolor. However, my dog is black and white and it has never discolored her black spots.
So, don't do tomato paste and for Christ's sake, don't do V8! What the hell good is that gonna do? Seriously!
Sooooo you're welcome! You can now go back to having a clean and fresh smelling dog now!
