Okay this was sort of started in a different thread as an off topic thing so I thought it might be kinda cool to move it here....
Got any cool, neat or unusual tips or hints on how to do/remove/fix/ anything?
You want to know how to get "something out of something"...well this is the place!
here's mine

To remove Skunk odour from animals as posted in HBG's "Nemesis" thread:

Best skunk odor smell removal I ever found involves a bath with using combination of Dawn Dishwashing soap and baking soda rubbed vigorously into the affected beast. I used conditioner afterward to keep his skin from drying out too.

Warning though.... Keep away from the face though so it avoids the eyes.

Believe me, When Chase got nailed by one who wandered in the backyard I tried everything and that combination got a good chunk of that smell out the first day. Mike was skeptical but I tried it (nothing to lose at that point) and was abeliever too after Chase was bathed. Mind you he still stank to high heaven when he got wet (which was every day being a Lab mix) but at least when he dried he didn't smell nearly as bad. :)

Anybody else feel free to chime in....i love this kind of thing!

hydrogen peroxide works well to remove skunk odour too.

if you have a coffee stain (or someting similar): wet the area, pour salt on it (to make a pile) and leave overnight.
