Oh man I feel for you, I did that in my old car,(hit a skunk) I couldn't get rid of the Skunk funk, no matter what i did I could smell it for like 2 months, it was really bad after the car sat out in the sun all day...... The quick fix is goto one of those DIY car washes with the spray air freshener things and start piling in the quaters and spray the underside of your car like theres no tomarrow!!! Then sell your car before the Air freshender smell wears off!

Well, aside from not hitting skunks, I have also heard tomato juice works. Do a search on google for home remedies for it.

You could also try pressure washing the under side. Maybe take a lift to one of those carwashes and spray it for a good 10 minutes. Or maybe drive through something else... roll it in a big puddle and put dishwash soap in it?

Wait 4-6 months for the smell to go away. I tried everything after the neighbor's stupid German Shepherd chased a skunk under the car.

Useful tip: Don't take any girls out with that car.

I thought Tomato juice was for getting the smell off people... I cant imagine it would work the same on a vehicle. Power washing the car top and bottom for hours with many differant types of cleaner is probably your only solution.

Good luck to you. I cannot imagine trying to get that smell out of interior fabric. Maybe some kind of industrial steam clean? Maybe call a dealer and find out if they know anywhere that does heavy duty cleaning.

spray it off underneath as much as you can. Then park it outside and get used to it until it airs out Click the image to open in full size.

tomato juice DOES NOT WORK. it may help but we have had our dog get into it with a skunk and no doubt it dont work. when i had a skunk spray my car it smelled for about a week. its skunky but not horrible, it will go away with time thats about all u can do.

park the car on the lawn (grass) over night. Something with the grass and the dew in the morning draws all the scent out of the car.

Baking soda absorbs smell. I put it in my freezer in plastic bags to draw out the freezer burn/fish smell from food.

Maybe MASS amounts would help somewhat. But I don't think anything but time will help in the long run. Try shampooing your carpets and using Fabreeze.

I hit one last year and I tried everything to get the smell out of my car but nothing worked. Extra strength febreeze will help with the inside, but I had to use an entire bottle of it and the smell was still there just not as bad. Washing your car every other or every couple of days helps too. Good luck.

DOUCHE?

Believe it or not, this over-the-counter medicated women's product has been the recommended treatment of choice by pet groomers for years. For small to medium sized pets, mix two ounces of douche (the vinegar and water variety) with one gallon of water. Larger dogs will require double the amount of douche and water. Pour mixture over pet, allow it to soak in for 15 minutes, rinse. Follow this treatment with a regular shampoo and rinse.


hahahah funny remedy

Steam clean & pressure wash. Engine cleaner, & then Biosheild the underside. Febreeze like the previous guy said, will help alot too. Click the image to open in full size.
