 ELIMINATION OF ODOR

To eliminate skunk musk odor from in the home, close all windows and doors and turn off ventilation. Open all INTERIOR doors, closets, etc.  Boil white vinegar for a couple of hours. Open windows and turn on ventilation. When the vinegar smell dissipates, it should take the skunk musk odor with it. 

White vinegar can be sprayed full strength on and under the house as well. 

It can be added to the wash and rinse cycle for washable clothing, curtains and linens. White vinegar can also be added to carpet and upholstery shampooers and in the water used to mop floors.

A large pot of boiling white vinegar can be set on a thick pad of newspapers in an "odiferous", tightly closed car and allowed to cool completely.  White vinegar can be used in water to wash car and spray underneath as well.

ELIMINATION OF ODOR - SPRAYED PETS:

An excellent odor removing shampoo for sprayed pets is made by mixing the following:

1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent (such as Dawn, Joy, etc)
1 quart Hydrogen Peroxide 3%

REMOVE ALL HAND JEWELRY AND ANIMAL COLLARS BEFORE USE.  Some sensitive skin can be irritated by chemical reaction between the solution and metals!!

Apply while foaming furiously. The oxygen released by the foaming neutralizes the Thiols (the odor part) and the detergent removes the oily part (that holds the odor in the animal's fur).

DO NOT STORE UNUSED SOLUTION!!  DISCARD IMMEDIATELY!!!!
