Vomit. Remove the smell of vomit from carpets

Let the carpet dry out until morning.

Make a paste of baking soda and warm water, rubbing this paste into the carpet and then sprinkle some additional dry baking soda over the carept and let this sit for a few hours. When the paste is dry, vacuum it up, and scrape as needed to remove all the paste. This removes the smells that you thought would be there forever!

When ever a carpet needs a freshen up, do the same sprinkle baking soda over the carpet. Then vacuum up a few minutes later. It stops your vacuum from smelling too!

Our daughter was sick all over the living room floor. Never thought we'd get rid of the smell but we have and so quickly. We will be telling everyone!

A solution of bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar works wonders. It has removed the lingering smell of child sick from my carpet. Will always use this in future. Cheap, simply and easy
This terrific tip will lead to other solutions! Thanks Comments By: AnnLSydney on 2010-08-08
