For the house, I don't know, but to remove skunk odor from humans and
animals, mix together:
1 pint hydrogen peroxide (3% solution, the most common)
1/2 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent
The detergent merely keeps the baking soda from settling.
Bathe the pet or human with it, but do not mix these ingredients
together before use or store any leftover amount since they can
explode in storage. Flush any excess down the toilet, and rinse out
Wring out a lb of ground meet all over poochie. Put it out for the night.
Poochie goes away. Cougar goes away because he's not hungry any more.
Skunk no longer get surprised and doesn't spray. Everybody wins...well
except for poochie.
Before we learned about the hydrogen-peroxide/baking soda/shampoo
concoction, we tried the tomato juice trick on our late great collie,
Zeffie. A word from the wise - do not use "country-style" tomato juice.
Country style juice is thicker & contains pulp which we learned gets
caught up tight in collie fur. Even though we rinsed her well, for weeks
afterwards I was pulling tomato pulp bits out of her coat. As well the
tomato juice stained her white ruff fur pink. So while it did work in
that she smelled better, I found some definite downsides to tomato juice.
