How to Instantly Remove Skunk Odor From a Dog

By Cuteness Contributor

Dealing with a dog that's been sprayed by a skunk is not a pleasant experience, for you or for your pet. Neutralize the odor quickly with a shampoo made with just a few ingredients you probably have on hand. Repeat the bath if needed to totally neutralize the odor, so your dog -- and your home -- can return to normal.

Pour the hydrogen peroxide into a glass or plastic container.

Add the baking soda and dish soap, and mix. Do not put a lid on the container when mixing.

Immediately after mixing the ingredients, work the solution into your dog's fur, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Let the solution sit for 10 minutes.

Rinse your dog thoroughly with water and repeat the washing, if necessary.
