Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser is known for the removal of poison ivy oil, but it can also remove the skunk smell from your pet's fur. Be sure to follow up with a regular pet shampoo to remove all of the Tecnu from the fur.
If you own an animal, and especially if you live in the country, you may be familiar with skunks spraying your pets. You may have tried the old-school method of bathing in tomato juice, but this is not always effective. Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser is an easy solution to this stinky problem.
So, what is this substance that causes our eyes to tear up and nose to burn? A skunk's defensive mechanism is the "spray" that they can shoot up to several feet. It comes from their glands which produce a mixture of sulfur-containing chemicals. The strong odor wards off predators and can be very difficult to remove.
Because the smell of skunk spray is created by an oily substance, Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser can be effective at removing it. See the video above on how to clean your pet when sprayed by a skunk. Be sure to follow up with a regular shampoo pet bath to remove all of the Tecnu Original.
