My Skunk De-Smell Recipe - is from Amazon.
- awesome stuff, car lots use to take cig smell out of used cars & trucks
- I've used it on skunked Kelly / even added stuff in washing machine, doing here blanket
- and years ago, to remove smell from sewer backup, in basement
- kills odors, that don't return
- also spray furnace filters, to freshen up the whole house

Plus - Apple Cinder Vinegar in a Slow Cooker, run on low...all day with lid off.

Works perfect & quicker, than anything else on market...I buy the 1 gallon size, last for years.

Mary Ellen's AtmosKlear Odor Eliminator
Tough on odors but gentle on the environment. Removes odor on contact. Non-toxic and biodegradable it's safe enough for skin clothing and pets. Kind to anyone with allergies and chemical sensitivities.

ANYWAY.......

Lannie, I hear you about the clean spots on the carpet. A number of years ago, I bought an automatic carpet spot cleaner that just sits with its mouth over the spot and does all the work for you--sprays on liquid, scrubs it with a rotating brush and then sucks it all up again. I finally gave it away--it did a really good job, so good that it left little CLEAN circle all over the carpet. Which looked just about as bad as the original spot.

So....time for bed. Indoor swimming pool tomorrow...here I come.
We had Meadowcat tailing us. We were waiting for her to go to bed. She never did.

Glad you had a safe trip and getting to play in a pool!

Every night when I came home, he'd put his big ol' feet up on the half-door, with his soggy knot rope toy in his mouth ("Here, Mommy, YOU play now!), wagging his nub until I was sure it would just fly right off! But he was fine, and Pepper will be fine, too.



Well, DUH, I didn't even think of that. THANK YOU!!!! Luckily, I'm lazy and hadn't got around to cleaning up the rest of the carpet yet. I want to vacuum first and I didn't have time yesterday. I just went and did a couple of test cleans, and it's amazing how fast it disappears. It didn't even make a clean spot, it worked so fast! (They're not really BIG blobs of blood, but there are so many, it seems worse.) So today, after I vacuum, I'll get on the floor with some cleaning rags and a bottle of H202 and get the rest of them gone. I use that stuff for everything, so we always have several quarts on the shelf.



I've cleaned two dogs' faces with the deskunker mix. It's not combustible, at least it's never combusted when I'VE been using it. The body I usually slop the stuff on, but the face, I soak the cloth in it, then squeeze out most of it and wipe the face (muzzle, up between the eyes, top of the head, ears, etc.). Nothing I can do if they get it INSIDE their mouths, which both dogs did (Missy and her predecessor, Flash), but I can get it off the outside with that mixture. But maybe you meant "volatile" instead of "combustible?" It IS fizzy.

Skunk Odor Control
Skunk odor is difficult to neutralize and persists for a long time. Household products that help remove skunk odor include ammonia, bleach, vinegar, washing soda, laundry soaps, smoke from a citronella candle and canned tomatoes or tomato juice. WARNING: do not mix ammonia and chlorine bleach. This combination may form a gas (chloramine) that is toxic if inhaled, even in small amounts.

Some old-time remedies include burying fouled garments in the soil for a few days and then letting them air out; subjecting clothing to smoke from burning leaves, especially cedar or juniper foliage; and exposing clothing to car exhaust. But remember, it is DANGEROUS to run a car in a closed garage.

Another deodorizing solution that you can mix from readily available ingredients is as follows:

1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon liquid soap

Mix ingredients well and thoroughly saturate the areas the skunk has sprayed. Use immediately and do not store the mixture or keep it in a glass container. It expands and will break sealed containers. Be aware these solutions may cause color changes in certain materials. In treating pets, keep solutions away from their eyes.

Commercial deodorants such as Neutroleum Alpha are masking agents that are effective for reducing skunk odors. Neutroleum Alpha is available from some pest-control operators or may be obtained by writing the manufacturer and requesting a list of local sources. When using chemicals, always read and follow label instructions.

ECIN Good Sunday morning - Still laughing at TN's post - HOW true , lol

Been doing all the dogs bedding this morning - It's a Sunday thing

Mr. Business had a Rally OB training here at home yesterday - I will say , it was his absolute best showing he has ever did - all I can say was he was on it . looks like the extra work here is paying off some - really wish I had taped it . Think we will do it again this afternoon .

Current temp is 33 - was snowing this morning early , just light stuff .

Been watching the 24 hours on NBCSN - weather looks VERY nice in Daytona !

Well better get back to work

BTW - I looked on the PBS line up and the only thing I found about a WWII aircraft on there show that started with a S is the Lysander Airplane , Believe it was made in Canada .

Nope modm--not a Spitfire. I'd have remembered that. The plane they were rebuilding was, as far as anyone knew, the last intact (more or less) one of it's kind.

It is fast--especially if it is smears of blood and not blobs. Basically what happens is the peroxide bleaches out the iron which makes up the colored part of the hemoglobin in blood. Not only that but it'll work even if the blood stain is sat around awhile and dried--even if it was on cloth and went through the drier too.

I was so freaked out about the prospect of Denny trying to use peroxide in her steam cleaner I forgot to even mention that it isn't combustable but people put in jars or bottles , screw the lids or caps on and it turns into a mini-bomb. And they are very surprised to find they've got this mixture all over the cabinet under the sink.

LOL, again I was really distracted by the fear that Denny was going to be making mini-bombs that I didn't address much except that possibility. My recipe is a little differet than yours. Mine called for a quart of peroxide, i/2 cup of baking soda, couple of TBSP of Dawn and 1/2 cup of water--but mine was basically for a very hairy Aussie. That recipe was for one hairy dog or two Dobermans.

And good morning to you Lannie, and LadyDi who is always up before the crack of dawn here in Portland--more rain here and it got to blowing like stink in the night so the old cherry tree in the back yard will have shed a ton of old brittle wood.

I'm off to the clinic to feed and clean up the kennel kitties and boarders (if any).

We live and die it the clinic with hydrogen peroxide--buy it by the six pack--set up the bottles with spray caps and use it on all the surgical drapes and towels. We treat anything that has blood on it and then wash it with a heavy dose of OxiClean and the blue Chlorox laundry detergent--makes stuff that you thought was only going to be good for throwing away look like new.

I know peroxide mixed with dish soap and another ingredient is a very effective cleaning agent for a skunky dog. You can find it on the K-State website. Had to utilize it twice with Axel.

It worked best the first incident. He didn't get a direct hit.

Direct hit second time was a hard one.

Got to keep the concoction away from their eyes and nose and dispose of the leftovers as it is combustible when stored. He stunk up the house for 2 straight months with just his face stinking!

The third ingedient for the deskunker is water and DON'T try to store the stuff EVER! And only the freshly made up batch will be effective for deskunking.

Oy vey--trying to protect Denny from herself is practically a full time job.

modm Well another day of painting down and today to go - We painted 1 coat in the master bedroom. I primed the kitchen as it had dark cayenne spice color on bottom of kitchen rail. I also re-caulked all the seams between countertop and walls. I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself.

Second coat will go up today of the bedroom and I will paint a coat in the kitchen. If I have time will fix the window seams in the master and put up window blinds. We used curtains but they are heavy and made the room "feel" small. We had to spackle where the curtains were attached and primed.


Doc - we also had sausage gravy and biscuits - but from Hardees....it was ok but I am betting dollars to donuts yours were much better!!!

Have a good day all!
