How To De-Skunk A Cat

The following recipe which appeared in Chemical & Engineering Magazine, is a far more effective solution at removing skunk oil than the old remedy of tomato juice and will not require repeated use. This recipe may also be used on dogs as well.

De-Skunk Recipe:

  • 1 Quart 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 1 Quarter Cup Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Liquid Dish Soap

As you bathe your cat, work the solution into her coat. Afterwards rinse her coat with tap water. If your cat is longhaired you may have more of a challenge in getting the solution to penetrate down to her skin.

When finished, discard any left over solution immediately as the container may explode due to the release of oxygen caused by the chemical reaction.
