Another recipie that works wonders for stinky things
like fishy coolers (or hands) and skunked dogs is to use a paste
made from baking or washing soda wetted with store
bought hydrogen peroxide.
Use this after a cleaning with laundry detergent to get the easy greasy stuff off.
The soda raises the pH and makes the peroxide work much more effectively.
The stinky molecules typically contain a nitrogen or sulfur part
that gets oxidized into a form that soap can easily wash away.
For skunked dogs use the baking soda as the washing soda is
hard on them. Be very careful around the eyes, ears, and mouth.
Also be aware that it will bleach the fur of the dog to some degreee.
(my lab looked a hundred years old after getting de-skunked)
Would also work well with white tennis shoes,
but you will end up with dull colors with any other shoes.
