Skunk Spray Removing the Odor

Skunk Spray Removing the Odor

Getting rid of the stink from the unfortunate person, pet or object that has become the target of the business end of a skunk is a challenge that has confronted us since man and skunk first did battle.  Soap and water are ineffective and the old remedy of washing your skunk sprayed dog with tomato juice only leaves you with a dog that still stinks but is now also “pink”.


Paul Krebaum of Molex Inc. performed research on “Thiois”, those nasty smelling chemicals typical of degrading proteins, like skunk spray.  Krebaum has found that the thiois can be changed to non- smelly products by an oxidation process.  The formula he developed contains the following:

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


This breaks up the oils in the skunk spray and allows the other ingredients in the solution to do their stuff.  The solution should be rinsed off after application with tap water.


The beauty of this formula is that all the ingredients are readily available from a number of stores.  Once the formula is made, it can be immediately used as a wash on the unfortunate person, pet or object.


The formulation defies normal marketing techniques as the chemicals become quite unstable when mixed and releases oxygen in such quantity that a container or bottle would rupture.  as a result of these marketing/packaging difficulties, Krebaum decided to make this bit of information a “free-gift-to-humanity”.
