Was nearing the finish if a thorough spring clean of my kitchen
Then I dropped a bottle of red wine and bottle of blackberry vodka home brew onto the tiled floor. Blackberries and red everywhere.
All cleaned up now, but the prob is that our house is on the market and we've got a viewing tomorrow (viewings are like gold dust!).
How do I get rid of the boozy smell - it stinks like a very fruity brewery.

Oh dear!

I guess all doors and windows opened until late tonight and then again first thing in the morning, give everything another good clean, not sure what else you can do really - sure someone will have some wise advice though!

Make sure you have cleaned up every last drop, preferably with bleach. Rinse and repeat. Throw any cloths you have used into the outside bin and all glass etc. Make sure the mop has been rinsed within an inch of its life or had the mophead replaced. Leave windows open as long as possible.
