HELP! How to get rid of skunk smell?!

07.09.13
Tomorrow we're having 20 people over for a party, and wouldn't you know a SKUNK sprayed the side of our home! So now our garage and the rest of our house smells like skunk. ;-( I know how to remove the scent from a dog, but how would I neutralize it in my home? And QUICKLY? Thanks so much!

    I always use a orange oil based product (my dogs think skunks are play toys I deal with this at least once a year) in a pressure sprayer and spray the house the patios and the ground around the area and as my dogs are not allergic to orange oil I dip

    Terri S., I did find this online. There's a skunk repellent that I might try. Though it's made from fox urine, ugh, not sure which smell is worse! Here's the article: http://www.squidoo.com/howtokeepskunksaway

    April, THANK YOU, Orange Oil sounds WAY more appealing than the fox urine they're selling online! I appreciate this!

    thanks for the ideas. We have a stockade fenced yard and we checked and cannot find how it's getting in, but we double checked and added a little more dirt around so maybe I won't need these ideas. Might help with the rabbits who eat my flowers too!
