Default YUCK! Anal gland odor. How do I get it off my hands?

I took Jazz for her walk (harnessed) and the neighbor's sprinkler system kicked in just as she walked by it. She freaked out! I picked her up and carried her into the house, and just as I was setting her down, she let it rip!

My shirt, I don't care about - I'll burn it!

But, I have washed my hands with everything I can think of and it STILL STINKS!

Anyone know of a miracle cleaner (for use on skin) that will get rid of the odor?

I haven't tried that one, yet...but I will! It's getting better, but I think that's because most of the skin has been scrubbed off. I sit here, watching Jazz diligently clean her butt. Must be nice to have a built in 'gland odor removal system'.

I only have one cat that has done this....and he has done it a couple of times to me. Two of them were when I was trying to clip his nails. Which is why he is the only cat that doesn't get his clipped!! One was when I was trying to get him in the carrier when I was moving into the house in Novemeber.

Man it is the worst smell ever!!! I say keep scrubbing

tsk, tsk...Did you just laugh at my misfortune, Deb? If you did, you've jinxed yourself.

This wasn't the first time I have been "skunked" by one of my cats...but the other times were just on my shirt or jeans, and I could rip them off fast and do a quick load of laundry: extra-soapy and with bleach

When it is on the skin, your options are a bit more limited.

One time i got some kind of skunk odor on one of my hands. Dipped it in rubbing alchohol and took the lighter to it. Smell gone in an instant!

I hope you're being facetious! That's extremely dangerous. You might lose the odor, but you could lose your hands at the same time.
