my Facebook page prompted the sharing of a 'recipe' for a de-skunking solution by Shelly Wade. Several others, including seasoned dog groomers, vouched for its effectiveness and contributed tips that I now invite you to keep handy in the event you should ever need it.
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1Tablespoon Dawn dish detergent
2 quarts warm water.
Mix all ingredients well. Work the solution into the pet's fur, hair, skin, feathers, whatever, thoroughly for at least five minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water. Repeat if necessary. Follow-up with De-Skunking Rinse.
Mix a solution of 9 parts water to 1 part white vinegar. Rinse the pet with this solution. Do NOT rinse.
NOTE: Shampoo should be mixed prior to each use, never mixed and stored.
Shampoo is drying to the skin. May require follow-up with a leave-in conditioner.
May bleach fur or feathers.
