If you’ve already stepped into your home after being skunked, ventilate as much as possible by opening doors and windows. An air current, especially, will help some of the stench find its way out. To clean everything else, use a solution of one quart hydrogen peroxide, one teaspoon of degreasing dishwashing liquid, and 1/4 cup of baking soda
. Don’t leave the mixture on for too long, though—hydrogen peroxide can have a bleaching effect on textiles and wooden surfaces. The Humane Society of the United States
also recommends the same solution to de-skunk household animals; just make sure you bathe them with regular pet shampoo afterward and clean sensitive areas with cool running water.
