The quilt as been washed and washed and aired but I can still smell it when it is close to my face. Has anyone ever had this problem and if so please tell me how you solved the problem. I sure thank you for any help.
    There is a product called Scent-A-Way (sp?) that hunters use to hide their scent from the deer. It is by far the best thing for skunk smell. I had a Great Dane that got into a skunk several times and this is the only thing I found that eliminated it. Good luck!

    My daughter's dog does the exact same thing and I hope some one can come up with a solution as they have tried everything from tomato juice to vinegar to dawn dish soap and nothing seems to help. Once that smell is in the house it is there for months.
    Happy Quilting

    I saw on the internet that some people have had success with using wood ash to remove skunk smell. Apparently the wood ash alkaline ph works much like the tomato juice.

    Weird solution, but told to me by a wildlife veterinarian: douche liquid! (Summer's Eve type). Don't know why it works, but it does. Can be used on animals, humans, clothing, etc. My son used to work at a wildlife rehab center and was forever getting sprayed. Vet kept lots of douche on hand for the interns.

    My son uses that also, I saw him in the store one day and he asked it I would buy it for him,
    As a single man I guess I could see he was embarrassed to be buying douche but hey if it works!!
