How to Deskunk

How to "De-Skunk" Your Dog

contributed by Doug McGuire

The magic mixture is:

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

Mix together, thoroughly scrub mixture into dog's coat and let stand five minutes. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

This recipe works like a charm. Also, at 3% strength (ordinary drugstore variety), the peroxide will not affect coat color - no bleaching effect at all.
