Empty a 1-qt. bottle of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide into a medium-sized bucket. Add 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 tsp. liquid dish detergent. If you do not have baking soda, use sodium bicarbonate. If you do not have liquid dish detergent, use liquid soap.
Use a wooden spoon or your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients together.
Place cotton balls into the ears of any pet that will be bathed to help keep the cleaner out of the ears.
Use the mixture like a shampoo to bathe the skunk spray victim. Use the mixture immediately. Do not let it sit too long or the solution will lose effectiveness.
Rinse the mixture completely using clean tap water.
Repeat the application a second or third time if necessary.
Towel dry and groom as usual.
