The merging of the hydrogen
peroxide and baking soda creates
lots of oxygen in a big hurry. This
chemical reaction is key to how the
solution works. The trick is the oxygen, which
grabs the molecules that go into
that horrid smell. Once snagged, the
smell is neutralized. Simple
Now, The Rest
of the Story--
Chemist Paul Krebaum came up with

No retirement on the Rivera.
Nothing. And it's a shame,
too, because the man deserves some
kind of reward. The stuff
really works -- It is better than tomato juice, which dampens the

by newspapers all over the country.
In it, he called his mix a
"free-gift-to-humanity type deal."
Commercial preparations such as "Skunk Off"
also seem to work well but are a little more costly.
