My friend and I were out with our dogs this afternoon, walking along the railroad tracks and gleaning walnuts in the orchard next to the tracks. The dogs were having a grand old time running up the embankment and through the marshy ground and puddles in the orchanrd. Suddenly, Jobi made a beeline for the tracks with Judah in hot pursuit. When we got up there we found a dead skunk (train vs. skunk, train won) and the dogs rolling away in it. I couldn't get them off for anything! Thank goodness my friend's dogs had better sense! Tied them in the BACK of the truck coming home, shut them in the backyard, and grabbed the "skunk kit" out of the trailer! I was so glad to have it, but never expected to use it here in Hanford. I don't ever want to run into a live skunk, a dead one was quite enough!

Gina's skunk remedy:
Mix 1 cup Dawn dishwashing liquid with a bottle hydrogen peroxide into a gallon of water. Soak the DRY dog and let sit 15-20 minutes. I will testify, it does work!

Poor babies.. that is a CLASSIC photograph.. well done, er, even if it stunk up the place to get it.

A word on the "remedy". Do NOT premix.. make the remedy fresh. And use it within 30 mins or so. It does lose it effectiveness otherwise.

I'm glad that worked for you. We used to have a Jack Russell that never learned to leave skunks alone. We washed him {each time} in the peroxide with a box of baking soda and then washed them with the laundry soap. Worked too.
Then threw away whatever clothes I was wearing.

Not saying whether this has actually happened to anyone I know, but would there be any reasons such a mix couldn't be used for a person too? In case one got, um, skunked? Those ingredients seem far easier to store during a trip as a preventive measure than a crate full of tomato juice cans.
Driving on parkways and parking in driveways.

I am not sure hydrogen peroxide and clothing mix well.

But, I don't know.. I don't suggest you immediately test it by diving into a nice bath full. Research first!
