Skunk Deodorizing Formula

Skunk and FlowersThere are several commercial products available that do a great job (Skunk Off among them), but you can make a formula using simple, inexpensive ingredients you probably already have at home that does a wonderful job. The ingredients are:

  • 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid soap


  1. Mix ingredients well and use the solution to bathe your dog or cat. It works best if you don't use anything prior to this mixture.

  2. Lather pet well and then rinse thoroughly with tap water.

  3. After your pet dries, the smell should disappear.

Occasionally more than one bath is needed and at times, the pet will still have a faint smell when wet for a few days following this.

DO NOT store the formula after mixing as it may build pressure from the chemical reactions.
