So I was out mowing the lawn yesterday when this skunk with some sort of oozing goo coming out of it's mouth starts walking toward me. So I stop the mower and grab the water hose and start spraying it. Didn;t even phase it. I got away and watched it crawl up under my deck. So about 10 minutes later I go to water some plants and there it is again looking at me. I decided to go inside rather than risk getting sprayed if I didn;t see it again.
Today I come home. Open the door to the truck and whamo the whole place stinks like skunk. I walk in the door to the house and whole house stinks like skunk. All I could think was the skunk got in the house. Didn't help that Kathy left all the windows open while she was out working. Well I check around and walk outside to the back yard and there is the skunk. Tits up in my yard. Dead as a doornail. Some kinda schmegma coming out of it's mouth. Call Fish and Game to see if they want to test it, but they say no, not unless it bit someone. So I had to go dig a hole and plant the skunk. Rip Stinky...... Now to figure out how to get rid of the stink in my house. I do have a commercial ozone generator at work. maybe that will work? I doubt I'll be able to sleep here tonight it is that bad.....

I have no idea how to get that odor out of a house. There is a concoction of baking soda, Dawn and hydrogen peroxide that will get it off a dog, but you can't really wash your whole house down with it.

Oh man, that is awfull. Once in a while I pass by one that has been hit by a car and the stench takes my breath away, literally!!! Good luck with this man.
Maybe you should take a swim in the saltwater pool to cool off
It just takes time on the odor. It gets inside drawers and all sorts of odd places. When I was a teen we had a skunk climb up our dryer vent and panic when we started the dryer. The unit was in the garage but the smell invaded the entire house both floors. Several days later I went to do a jazz gig and found the smell in my trombone case......it sucks
DON'T WATER IT, YOU'LL HAVE A BUMPER CROP OF 'EM NEXT YEAR!!!
Just kidding, but that really stinks! Kinda' goes along with living in the boonies. Gunshots at night and rats in the city or gunshots during the day and skunks in the boonies. The nice thing about gunshots in the country is that I'm pretty sure they're not shooting at me. Not so sure in the city...
buy several gallons. wash every item in your house with it, all your clothes, curtains, EVERYTHING. Spray your furnace and ac vents, and also spray into return air grills. Do this several times while the system is running. I also soaked down the filter a few days.
Shampoo your carpets with it instead of the usual chemical. get several spray bottles and spray the walls, furniture and air. It can be used as a surface cleaner too, so mop and clean your walls with it. Repeat as needed.
Ground coffee beans work well to absorb odors. Buy a couple of big bags from Dunkin Donuts or a cheap source and put them out on plates all over the house. I bought a used car that stunk from a lousy air freshner. I put a shallow tupperware container of ground coffee under the passenger seat and it neutralized the odor after a week or so.
