A Great Remedy to Have On Hand

The Divine Miss Em, my EpiscoPup, has once again been "skunked". This may or may not have a great deal to do with church ... but if you are the owner of a pet who has undergone the skunk treatment and you are headed for church - or nearly anywhere in fact - this remedy will make your entrance less noticeable! I used it on Emmy Lou Thursday night and then on me, my clothes and her dog collar.

This mixture was recommended to me years ago by Rev. Richard McKeon of Zion Episcopal Church, Dobbs Ferry, NY. Thanks again, Richard. In a twist on Mr. Cohan's words: "My dog thanks you, my car thanks you, my home thanks you and I thank you!"

The Recipe:

One pint of hydrogen peroxide, one small box of baking soda, and a couple of squirts of any dish washing liquid mixed in a gallon of water.

DON'T mix the ingredients ahead of time as it loses its effectiveness within about an hour, and the mixture will explode if kept in a covered container.

When using on a pet, work the solution into the coat thoroughly, let it sit about five minutes, then rinse it out. BE SURE NOT TO GET THIS STUFF IN YOUR PET'S EYES, THOUGH!!

This solution also works as an effective rinse for clothing.
