For right now put a pan on stove with vinegar in it and boil it. the attomined vinegar will neutralize the skunk smell. If you have any crock pots that you can bring vinegar to a boil in you may want to set them in other parts of house. after you cant stand the smell of the vinegar any moore open up and air out and burn some vinella candles. And yes bathing the dog in vinegar will neutralize the smell and may be hard on skin. But I would bannash the dog to the out side for awhile also.
Now tomerrow when the pet stores call the pet store and see if thay have anything seems to me Cowgirlj swoore by somthing called skunkaway? might be worth checking out.

I don't know about the house, but this will work on your dog. We've used it several times on our 3 dogs and it does work. Occasionally you will need to use it twice. Wear very old clothes when you do this - we wound up throwing a set of old clothes away one time.

This formula was developed by a scientist who studied the makeup of the skunk odor. This neutralizes the oils in the spray.

* 1 quart 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
* 1/4 cup Baking Soda
* 1 teaspoon liquid soap

Mix in a bucket (it will fizz).

Soak your dog's fur, but be careful not to get any in his eyes.

Use a sponge to clean off his head and around his eyes.

Knead solution into the fur and be sure to get every part of him with it.

Rinse thoroughly.

I leave my boots outside the back door.
Otherwise some were talking last couple days around here about white vingar baths, washing down affected hard goods and burying clothes. Suggest hanging clothes out several days bfore washing.
For what I could help????

I have heard that washing the dog in tomato juice will neutralize the skunk spray. Febreze will probably help in the house. good luck
