Have fun scrubbing and cleaning.
Remember, it's oily. Use a good grease-buster. Dawn works wonders.
Beer works rather well. I learned this from an old timer who used to trap nuisance animals for the city. It does work on skunks also. Its a quick fix for anyones dog that has an encounter with a skunk. For a dog use a 6-pack in the tub. It works wonders.
yea! bottoms up! a mink sticks worse than a skunk. but it doesn't last 1/10 th as long. try baking soda! same thing you neutralize your hides with.
To clear the room pointed out a window. finish skinning, fleshing and a quick rinse in Dawn, make sure to rinse the soap out well. roll in a towel then tan or dp. The smell will be gone faster then you will think as I have seen it done and was ran out maybe purposely. it lingered longer in the air then it remained in the skin. Have fun
Try tomato juice. It worked for the Partridge family when they had a skunk on their bus. Ruebin Kincaid rules. Joking aside, it does dilute smell. Good luck.
