My sweet Gracie got sprayed by a skunk this morning.  I was still in bed...Rick got up before me and let her outside.  EWWWWW, he comes in and so gently tells me...Gracie got sprayed by a skunk. 

Of course, I jumped up out of bed and started gathering things together to bathe her.  Thankfully my Girl Scout training had me ready for just such an emergency.  I got into the pantry and into the box where I keep some of my cleaning supplies.  Yep, I had a bottle of this stuff --->

Gracie got a bath.  Poor baby doesn't like a bath, but she was so good.  She smells better, but the house still has residual skunk scent.  I have scrubbed things, I have put towels and other things that were used into the washer with LOTS of vinegar, borax and detergent.  They have been washed twice and I think there will be one more washing.  I got a tip that the pet store has products that you can wash things in to help remove pet smells.  Whatever doesn't come out "skunk free" will be disposed of!
