I had ordered several items from the Almanac for X-Mas gift back in November 2009. I received my package in early December but the Recipe Calendar was missing. I called them in early December and again in mid December. I still have not received the Calendar and now it is February. All I can say is think twice before you order anything If I here from them I'll let everyone know.

skunk smell eradication formula

I can't BELIEVE it but I have successfully managed to lose the Almanac's formula to get rid of skunk scent on an animal. I remember some of the ingredients but not proportions. Hydrogen Peroxide, dish liquid ???? Can anyone give me this formula-again? Sharonboyce@hotmail.com

Here's one.

1 liter (or quart) white vinegar OR 3% hydrogen peroxide (peroxide may cause bleaching)

1/4 c. Baking soda.

1 tsp. dish detergent (also a de-greaser

And another

Choose skunk odor remover that will help you get rid of the skunk smell on your dog. Since your must act fast when a skunk strikes, it’s nice to have everything you need on hand. The following solution has worked for many people and is a favorite among home remedies: mix 1 qt. of 3% hydrogen peroxide, ¼ to ½ cups baking soda and 1 – 2 tsp. dish soap. (It’s important not to store this in a closed container since the mixture of these ingredients creates pressure and could burst.) Another thing to keep in mind is the bleaching effect hydrogen peroxide could have on your dog’s coat. If this is a concern, try substituting vinegar for the peroxide

I have submitted your request to the Old Farmer's Almanac Editors, to see IF they can find it in their vaults.

Most welcome.

Tomato Juice

My collie stuck her beautiful long nose into the tall grasses and ZAP, the skunk got her! Somehow she got her eyes closed in time.

Tomato juice worked very well, although it makes for a second bath.
