You may be refering to my post Monday or so about our Catahoula getting nailed by a pole cat. I wound up washing him up good with d'mater juice and twice with Horse & Maine and can STILL smell it a little. I have printed yours and Mondays replies for future reference.
*Hope I never need em*
Thanks for taking the time to find your recipe Hogman!

Thanks for the recipes! I will pass them on to my cousin as she had a family of skunks under her porch that sprayed during the middle of the night. The whole house had to be treated!

One time a baby skunk sprayed my front tire. The whole front of the car interior stunk. I washed it down repeatedly with a vinegar and water spray. Then not knowing what else to do, to protect the dash and doors, I wiped everything down with a mixture of lemon juice and water. This seemed to make the car tolerable to drive! After a week, with windows down a lot, the smell was completely gone.

Tomatoes work good too. Even V8 or tomato juice can be sprayed around. Traps the odor or something.

We use one of those $400 LivingAir units to kill smoke odor in motel rooms. They manufacture ozone and spread some ions around that even deodorize inside the walls. We got it at auction for $70 from a guy who'd used it to get skunk smell from under the sauna. He put up cardboard shielding, ran it overnite and it worked too! I use it on my tenners every week or so. It will also cure musty cellars. I think the ozone's the key. That's that nice smell after a rain. We're taking this one along when we leave. I'll swear by those things. :)
