Paul Krebaum's Skunk Spray Remedy

The formula is NOT "my" formula.

It was created in the early 90's by an Illinois chemist by the name of Paul Krebaum.


1 quart (or liter) of three-percent hydrogen peroxide

Use fresh (unopened) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Hydrogen peroxide eventually turns into water (H2O).

1/4 cup (50 ml.) of baking soda
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) of liquid soap
1 pair of plastic or latex gloves
  • Bathe the dog outside or, if it's too dark or cold, in the bathroom with the door closed and window opened.
  • Combine the ingredients in an open container (do not store in a sealed bottle--it will explode).
  • Using gloves, wash your dog with lukewarm water and the mixture while the mixture is bubbling. Work the mixture well into the fur.
  • Be sure to concentrate on the area that was sprayed.
  • Keep mixture away from your dog's face and eyes (it's a harsh solution). (If your dog has been sprayed in the face, try Tricotine Liquid Douche Concentrate or any over-the-counter douche.)
  • Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes or so before rinsing off.
  • Rinse the dog with lukewarm tap water. Don't wash the mixture into your dog's eyes (use a washcloth to cover the eyes if you're rinsing the head).
  • After bathing, check your dog's eyes. If they are red and watering, your dog may have taken a direct hit in the face. Skunk spray won't blind the dog, but it's very painful. Contact a vet.


Don't store the mixed formula.
Avoid Getting Mixture Near Dog's Eye Area
It gives off oxygen gas that could eventually burst a closed container.
