I remembered this being posted by Christina on July 9, 2002. I cannot take any credit for it I had printed it out just in case. This may be what you are looking for - good luck
INGREDIENTS FOR WASHING FUR/SKIN
2 pitchers warm water (1 wash, 1 rinse)
1/4 cup baking soda
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide (new, unopened is best)
2 tbsp. DAWN dish liquid (best against odor)
1 cup vinegar (for rinse water)
Double amounts for whole body wash, leave wash on body for 10 minutes before rinsing.
FOR WASHING EYES (VERY important to do ASAP)
Saline eye wash, saline contact lense wash, or children's saline nasal spray. Some first aid kits have eye wash.
large clean sponge
sports bottle or bottle with squirt top
leash or tie
snacks to keep dog calm and attentive
Gently drip or spray saline into eyes and wipe with cold wet towel. Add first three ing. to water. When dissolved, pour onto sponge and gently sponge and rub into dogs fur around face, avoiding eyes. Repeat until half is used. Pour rinse water with vinegar into squeeze bottle and directly rinse face, using a towel to wipe eyes. Repeat wash & rinse, eye wash last. Very minimal residual scent.
See vet if dog's eyes continue to be irritated.
P.S. To keep from being nauseated yourself, tear any citrus fruit rind under your nose occasionally. Good Luck!
