    Last year while driving to my duck blind I ran over a skunk that got caught up in the under-carraige of my truck so that I had to knock it down with a stick... my truck smelled for months. Any suggestions on what I could have done to get rid of the skunk-smell better?

    I guess laying down @ the car wash and pressure washing the hell out of the undercarriage might've helped.

        VanDyke's (the taxidermy branch of Cabela's) carries a product that will supposedly remove skunk smell. I have also been told all of my life that tomato juice works. Now the issue of getting it up under the truck...I don't know. Maybe a pressure washer that has a tank for soap and such? Hope I never have the same problem!!!

          Here is the secret recipe that works!

          --> 1 quart 3 percent hydrogen peroxide
          --> 1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
          --> 1 teaspoon liquid soap or dish detergent

          --> Mix these together and bathe ("shampoo" in or rub down) the spray victim thoroughly.

          --> Be sure to use this mixture immediately after it is created, as it is "UNSTABLE"!

          --> Rinse with tap water afterward, and repeat if necessary.

          --> For spray in the eyes, flush with water as soon as possible.

          --> If you can't go to all of the trouble of buying hydrogen peroxide at your local drug store, then a 2% vinegar solution will help a bit.
          --> But please, don't bother with the old tomato juice tactic unless you want to smell like skunk & tomato.

          These tactics do not work ...

          --> Bath in tomato juice
          --> Spray with lemon or orange citrus
          --> Masking agents like perfume or Fabreze

            To add to 2Poppa's reply: Use DAWN dish detergent. It is supposed to be the best grease and oil remover, and Pepe Le Pew's spray is mostly oil.
