What’s the first thing you think of when you see a skunk? If you answered “stink” then you’re like most people. Many of us connect skunks with their smell. In fact, the name “skunk” comes from the Algonquin Indian word “seganuku” which means “one who squirts”. The stinky odor that you smell when skunks are around comes from a liquid that they can spray from two spots near their tails. This “skunk juice” is a mixture of sulfur chemicals. Sulfur is a mineral that smells a lot like rotten eggs which is why skunk spray is so stinky. Watch out if you get any of this juice on you because it is not easy to get off! Skunk spray is very difficult to remove from clothes, skin and hair. Though lots of pet owners swear that you can get a skunk’s smell out of a dog’s hair by washing him in tomato juice, the best way to remove the scent is by washing the stinky area with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dishwashing soap. This mixture changes the chemicals in the skunk spray so that it no longer stinks.
