I’m sure you had an incident were one or more of pets have been sprayed by a skunk.  This is no laughing matter, not only does it smell bad but it can make your pet sick from the over powering smell.  Luckily, there are a few home remedies to remove the smell from your pets.  The one I will share with you is made from common household products.

1/4 Cup – Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)

Mix all of them together. Apply to an already wet-ted down pet, work thoroughly into pets hair. Let mixture set for 3 -4 minutes. and then rinse.  ** Do not save unused portion of mix, it will not keep **
