Skunk Spray Recipe

Skunk Spray Recipe

We’re celebrating today! He’s gone and good riddance! Usually there are mixed emotions about releasing an animal, but not this time. We’re dancing and whooping and breathing regular, non-skunk scented air! Most skunks we rehab and release are fine to care for as long as you’re slow and quiet. BUT, every year there’s one skunk with absolutely no self-control. They’re usually young males (uh, huh, no surprise there, right?). Since we’ve been referring to this recipe a lot lately, we thought we’d share! Hope you don’t need it!
The Humane Society of the United States recommends this recipe which uses common household items. Don’t store the solution. Make a new batch each time you use it because hydrogen peroxide spontaneously degrades to oxygen and water.
