Lenny,

I would suggest that your daughter call her vet as the vet probably has the
chemicals needed. God, what a way to start the day. (LOLLOLLOLLOL)

What is the best way to clean up a skunk spray and can clothing be cleaned?
I just got a call from my daughter her husband got sprayed this morning
taking out the trash. The skunk was along side of his porch, this is in the
middle of town. Anyway he changed his clothes but had to go to work with his
new fragrance. He works in a factory that has a very strict point system. If
you are late, call off you get some points and ten points in a year you are
fired. Anyway my daughter is very upset with the odor in her home.

Hi, I agree!! that fomular works great.  You may want to use Dawn Detergent.
Dawn breaks down the skunk oils more rapidly.  Andy

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!

Here is the best spray I located. It was, quick to get rid of the smell. The 
only problem is it may or may not fade cloth. It does a good job of animals, 
cement and clothes.
1 16 ounce bottle Peroxide
1 small box of baking soda
2 tablespoons of liquid soap. (lemon if you have it)
1 gallon of water.
Mix and use immediately. do not cap or save.

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

Wow, really? We don't have skunks here, so 
fortunately I haven't had to experience this issue for many years.

And that I can testify to from personal experience!

A few years ago I read in the Outdoor Life magazine that mixing a feminine

me...I stay away from such cridders!
