How to Remove Skunk Odor Stains
Thanks to that skunk, your clothes now smell bad.
There is no need to wash your shirt five times to get the smell out, since there is a much easier way to remove skunk odors and stains with some of Tide’s tips.
Rinse in cold water to dilute the stain.
Pour and Pre-treat
Pour Tide Plus A Touch of Downy Liquid directly onto the skunk odor stain. Make sure you completely cover it and let set for 5 minutes. Pour from either the bottle or the cap.
You can also use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide Plus A Touch of Downy Liquid detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
