• What should you do if your dog or cat has been sprayed by a skunk? This is the only recipe I've found effective at eliminating skunk odor. Many other solutions have been tried and fail to work. I recommend you use rubber gloves when applying this mixture. Mix: 1 quart of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide 1/4 cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap Immediately apply after mixing to the skunked pet. Work in to the exposed fur and skin, then rinse thoroughly with regular water. Notes: Mix may bleach colored fur. If your pet has been sprayed in the eyes or mouth, rinse those areas with plain water. Do not use the mix in the eyes,
