Skunk Wash Instructions

  • 4 Quarts (4.5 Liters) Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 4 Tablespoons Baking  Soda
  • 1 Tablespoon Liquid Detergent or Laundry Soap (not shampoo!)
  1. Combine mixture and place on animal (keep out of eyes)
  2. Let stand for 5 minutes.  May lighten the animal’s coat  
  3. Repeat entire procedure if necessary
    1. The peroxide is the “bleach” component & the only thing that removes the stench.
    2. Baking soda prevents the peroxide from penetrating the animal’s skin.
    3. Liquid detergent/laundry soap is for nice smell & the only thing that won’t chemically react with the mixture.
