Dog with Skunk Breath?My dog got skunked last night and I used the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and liquid soap method that worked very well on his coat. The problem now is that when the dog got sprayed by the skunk, he was barking and apparently got a mouthful of the spray also. He still has that awful smell coming from his mouth and nose. Any other helpful hints would be appreciated.

Deodorize a Musty Couch?I found a semi-old couch that my university that was going to thrown out. I snagged it before they could throw it in the dumpster. It is a really nice couch that I could really use, but it has a slight mildew and dusty smell to it.

A decorative carousel music box.

Repairing A Music Box?I've taken it apart and put it back together to find out what the issue was and it seems like it's missing something? When I first got it, the thing was wobbly. It's supposed to play music when I spin the lid but the horses and top just comes off. I believe there's a piece missing and that's why it's wobbly. I found a video on YouTube and it's supposed to be a wind up. The top is supposed to allow it to be winded up.


A decorative ceramic vase.
