Well I’m not much for store bought stuff but I have used a product called “Natures Miracle” and it is just great. It is a clear liquid that just makes any odor vanish.

We have one of those little green carpet cleaners, the kind that holds the dirty water in a plastic part of the container. Well I used it to clean up a bad dog mess and forgot to empty it out, well, it sat for about a month. Needless to say it was quite ripe when I went to use it again.
I washed and washed but I could not get rid of the stink. Well, I poured in a little of this miracle stuff and I swear the odor just went away! No perfume, no smell at all. It really works. You can get a gallon at Petsmart for about $19. It also works on skunked dogs.

Sorry about the length of the post.

Yup, tomato juice is all. Rinse it off good after awhile cuz it's acidic. edible acid but still acid. :)

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

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.

rubber gloves
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!

I never tried that, but I know Massingil Douche will work to de-skunk.

Put a pack in a tub of warm water and wash the dog.
