DIY Skunk Spray for Dogs

As the weather starts to cool down, we are starting to see more activity in the critters that visit our homes.This can include mice, rats, opossums, and skunks to name a few.

This also means that the chances of our pets having a run-in with one of these critters also goes up.

For that reason, I thought it would be a good time to share an at-home skunk recipe, with ingredients that you just may have already in your home, or moving forward you may get to keep on hand.

I will also put a list of the ingredients down below, so you have easy access to make this up if needed.

DIY Skunk Spray for Dogs Ingredients include:

1-quart hydrogen peroxide

¼ cup baking soda

1 teaspoon or so liquid dishwashing soap (Dawn is one of the best for this)

And to give your recipe a little kick, I also recommend adding a drop each of doTERRA Purify and Lavender.

Be sure to wear gloves as the stink will transfer to your skin, and you want to avoid that at all costs and avoid your pet's eyes.

Soak the mixture into the coat and let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.

This is not a recipe that stores well, make it up, and use it all at one time, don’t save the leftovers.
