Lest I forget again

I have a little half-slip of papers that's been kicking around for years, and I keep losing it. I found it again just now and will immortalize it on the internet:

SKUNK BATH
1 qt 3% Peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 tsp liquid soap (Ivory)
Bathe in mixture for 10 min. Rinse with water.

In other words, if you have a dog, and the dog gets skunked, this is how you get rid of the smell.

Skunk Bath would be a great name for a band : )

That recipe would work well in the skunk infested region of SW Ontario. My parent's dog came home stinking more than a couple of times!

We've got a lot of skunks around here too. My dog was never sprayed, but I was always terrified he would be.

Cool! I haven't seen that episode.

That's another benefit of living in the desert...no skunks. Well, very few. My neighbors house smells skunkish every now and again, but I think that's something different.
