PROBLEM: Dog sprayed by a skunk.
SOLUTION: A simple recipe. Mix together in a bowl 1 quart of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide; 1/4 cup of baking soda; and 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap, like Dawn. Apply to dog with a towel. Bathe and rinse dog and the odor will instantly disappear. Side effect: this solution may give dark fur a "highlight'' effect.
