Skunk Spray Antidote
Humans rarely get sprayed by skunks, but for dogs it's fairly common. If (or when) your dog gets sprayed, if possible, leave him outside for a while—the smell will subside dramatically in 24 hours and you won't stink up your whole house. It takes a lot longer than that for the smell to disappear completely, however, so you will have to wash the stink out. Before you spend a bunch of money on expensive shampoos, take a tip from the Humane Society: “Mix 1 quart of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap. Bathe the dog in it and rinse.” Wear gloves to avoid smelling like a skunk yourself.
