    What they need is hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Hydrogen peroxide breaks up skunksquirt, and ammonia removes the broken down skunksquirt.

    DUDE! It’s a cartoon; trust me, if Jan wants tomatoes to work, they’ll work. :)

    On the other hand, she might be working up to tomatoes not working. Or something totally different, to keep us in suspenders.

    FINALLY! I was wondering when they were going to get enough tomato items for a much-needed tomato bath, ’cause my eyes are starting to water.

    @Violet Bay

    They tested it on Mythbusters, and it really does work. You use tomato juice, though, and not actual tomatoes. I don’t know about catsup.

    It’s a classic case of “a little dab’ll do ya”. Whhoo-eee!

    Skunk smell is so bad that your nose will suffer from exhaustion. Give it something else to smell – like tomato juice – and it switches to smelling the tomato juice, even though the skunk smell is still there. Someone arriving with a fresh nose will smell the skunk.

    I weigh in on the side of peroxide and vinegar. Tomato juice left on for 20 minutes did NOT help our dog. Peroxide did, immediately.

    It wouldn’t be a Stone Family camping trip without something going not right! One year Alix came down with the chicken pox, another Holly became a “woman” so this year, it’s Max’s turn!

    Ugh. One of my clients dogs got sprayed once. The dog got a bath, not sure what they used, but it still smelled for days after and so did the house. And the towels that they used to dry the dog off with, even after numerous washings! :o
