I am one that swears by it. For I use it on my dog guide when we first moved to 
the country and he got his first and last encounter with a skunk. Plus I use it 
on my cement pad a couple times. Works very well and quick

  Subject: Re: [BlindHandyMan] skunk spray

  When my dog got sprayed my vet recommended a mixture of two cups hydrogen 
peroxide (the regular three percent, not the one used for bleaching), a half 
cup of baking soda, and two tablespoons of dish soap. Unfortunately I got this 
invaluable advice the next morning since the little dear had the bad taste to 
get sprayed in the middle of the night, however, I have spoken with many people 
who used a version of this since and they swear by it. I don't see why it 
couldn't be applied to clothing or anything else that was touched by the spray.

  My reflex was to grab for the baking soda which did take care of the bit that 
had dripped on the carpet.

  However, even better I have since discovered Arm & Hammer's Washing Soda! It 
isn't the same as baking soda, and its getting harder to find but is often 
available in the laundry section of the store. Its a large box of powder and 
there is absolutely nothing like it for dealing with unpleasant odours. You can 
use it in many different ways, not just in the washer. It eats protein so can't 
be used on wool that's the only thing to be aware of when using it. A few vital 
boxes helped me get through a very bad (long) cat illness a year or so ago when 
he wasn't able to control his bladder, ... and if you've smelt cat urine then 
you can appreciate how special Washing Soda really is!

  Best of luck to your daughter, ... not an ideal way to start the week!
