After talking my lovely bride to dinner and a movie about thirty miles from home, ( we live in tim-buc-tu), we nailed a skunk with the passenger side hard as could be. Holy crap! We were about 1 mile from home. By the time we arrived we both reeked of not only skunk, but of some other unfathomable burnt skunk smell. I sure hope it doesn't rain for a few days. Can't park it in the garage.
Who else has had an encounter with a critter that stunk up your ride?
"For Gawd's sake, put a RELAY in there or you could burn the whole damn Jeep to the ground" ...this quote brought to you by people who do not understand the law.....Kirchoff's, Ohm's, or Faraday's.
Violation of KISS shall always ring false in TRUE engineering. - ME___
Had 75CJ5, 89YJ, 93YJ. Have 82CJ7 & 95YJ____Not one burnt yet due to lack of relays.
I've already had my neighbors texting and facebooking about the smell.
My 4year old told his 15 year old brother that mom an dad got skunked. Then he said because he hugged me... He got skunked too. Lol.
I'm surprised at how fast the smell has dissipated. My neighbors are beginning to come out if their houses now. Haha.
Btw. He's still on the road where we last saw him. Went by and said farewell to him today. The potlicker!
You might could go to a veterinarian and see if they have a product called "Skunk-Off". It's a spray that is meant to be used on your dog if they get sprayed. I've used it before when my Lab got sprayed and it worked wonders. When used on dogs, you just spray it on them, let it dry, and then wipe the down with and old towel and your done. If my lab got wet, you could still smell it a little bit but it was very faint. Might could just spray it on the Jeep and just let it dry (don't see why you would have to wipe anything down).
The only downside is that it is a little pricey. I think it was about $30 for a decent sized bottle. It was well worth it though!
There is a quick easy way to take care of this. Senior citizens have been doing it for years. Find a farmers market, locate the tomato stand, place into 4 HI and then confuse the gas and brake pedals. Instant tomato puree chopped, churned and sprayed all over the under carriage.
Skunk problem solved. Several other problems created.
Don't ask why I know this but mix a combination of baking soda, white vinegar, and water. Should be able to find the recipe on google. We had an epidemic here a few years ago and my wife used that to get the smell out of my clothes. You can put it in a spray bottle and lightly mist your interior with it - generally good deodorizer.
had to shoot a skunk that kept breaking in to my garbage. the best thing I used to get rid of the smell was a 75/25 mix of hydrogen peroxide 75% and baking soda 25%. it will take several washings but will work. good luck
