How to de-skunk dog

 

In the early 1990s, a group of unheralded chemists gave the world one of the greatest gifts since penicillin: A cheap, effective treatment for a skunk-sprayed dog.

Be prepared. Stock the ingredients in your rig.

If a skunk has rendered your dog unfit for human companionship, use this tested recipe to neutralize the odor.

•Mix 1 quart of hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of liquid soap.

•Apply mixture to dog.

•Put the dog on a leash and take it for a walk upwind of your least favorite neighbors.

•Leave the mixture on the dog for at least five minutes before rinsing.

•Then breathe easy.
