My carpets stink after my youngest decided to heave his guts in as many rooms as is possible. The stains have gone, but the smell is hanging around. What can i use to get rid of the smell? thanks

Bio washing powder. Mix with warm water & swill it to create a foam. Apply the foam only to the smelly areas, work in then blot out & repeat as necessary. You'll hear it fizzing as it 'eats' the odours. I've got cream carpets & have never had an issue with it changing the colour but do check on a hidden area first.

Bicarbonate of Soda. A whole tub or more on dry carpet. Leave it a long time of possible. Hoover.

Another vote for bicarb. Sprinkle, leave it overnight and then vacuum it up

Bicarb really works.

Yup loads of bicarbonate of soda. Really thick layer and rub/press it in. Leave overnight then Hoover up. Repeat if necessary. Had a DC with terrible reflux so am a puke removing ninja now.

I used bio washing powder but sprinkled on dry like you would bicarb, left for as long as you can manage then hoovered off, worked a treat.
