I got up this morning, let the dogs out and one of them had a run-in with one of these:
I have spent my ENTIRE day trying to rid the house (and the dog) of the smell.
In case this ever happens to you, I found a recipe online for a de-skunking solution that worked really well.
1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1-2 teaspoons liquid dish soap
Make sure you google "skunk remedy" and read about it before using it, but really, it worked VERY well for me.
Honestly, we were fairly lucky. Even though it was a direct hit it just got the side of her face and a little bit of her shoulder. I think that I got it as bad as she did though because I was holding the door when she bolted past me into the house.
Now, if anyone has any hints as to how to get the smell out of fabric (couch, carpet) I'd love to hear it!!! Again, the smell is FAINT because we made the dog do a u-turn before she made it too far, but I can still smell it and even though I know it will dissipate, I want it gone NOW!
Oh, I even bought an $8.00 candle at the grocery store to mask the scent. Crazy.
