Dd was sick on the carpet the other day. Cleaned up and disinfected it but the smell is lingering! What should I use to get rid of it?

Bicarb of soda is your friend. Sprinkle / dump loads over carpet and leave for 24hrs then vac.

Yy to bicarbonate.

Use it like shake and vac, but use loads. Leave for as long as possible. Vac up. Then squeeze lemons into hot water and dab into the area. One final covering of bicarb, again, left for as long as poss, then vac up. Should be as good as new!

Make sure carpet dry pre bicarb

I always used to use bicarb but not dry - if you make it into a thin paste & rub that in with a cloth (gently grin), you can vac it out as soon as it's dry & the smell will be gone. It's magic!
