Getting vomit smell out

Yep , don't laugh, the bi$&% will pay believe me.

Spent all day steam cleaning the carpet and seat but cant kill the stench. Sprayed a complete bottle of Mountain Mist Air refreshener in there but still cant lose the smell.

Any suggestions?

Go down to your local BP or Shell servo that has a carwash...they usually have a vaccum with the option of selecting a fragrance with it...we did my mates carpets with the fragrance and the whole car stank of lavender for months! They have 3 or 4 different ones to choose from

im sure youll be able to stomach the lavender rather than the current smell! :-)

Hmm . . . Used to know a guy who had a subaru forester. Anyhow, some chick spewed in they back of the car. Bottom line was he never got rid if the smell Luckily (?) he got t-boned by another chick the next year, and car rolled, writing it off . . . no more smell ! :)

Seriously tho, depending on what was spewed upon, I would be considering changing that part ( depending on the feasibility of course ). If not, do a search out there on the net - look for stuff that will eliminate the smell - NOT just cover it for a while and let it settle in longer in the background . . .

Re: Getting vomit smell out

Yep, Fabreeze or the new Maguire's odour remover spray.

Maybe pour a few stubbies of beer inside the car. That should mask the smell, but could get you locked up new time the breatho boys pull you up....

Re: Getting vomit smell out

Well if you wanna shampoo it, hire a britex from the super market, they usually have an attachment for doing your furniture, so you can use that to do your car :0)


I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: Getting vomit smell out

Use some vanilla essence in hot as you can handle water & rub into the area with a cloth, Just dab the area with the cloth & Depending where it is I wouldnt make it too wet....The vanilla smell will go quickly taking the other odour away with it ....

Normally I would use only a few drops but this sounds like a bigger job than maybe a 2 tablespoons say to about a small margarine container of water

This has worked many times for me when the kids have been crook on the carpets .....cant see why it wont work for a car interior

If its not in the carpet .....well maybe you will have to pull the door trims off ........its amazing where that stuff can get
