DS has spilt milk on his bedroom carpet and not told me about it. I went into his room today and the smell just hit me! What should i clean it with to get rid of the milk and the odour??

i have had this.
I damped a tea towel with water then sprayed loads and loads of febreaze onto the tea towel then lay it over the patch. Each time it dried out, i sprayed it again with the febreaze.
Leave it lay over the patch completely covering it for a couple of days and keep spraying the febreaze.
It did work ok.
Give it a go.Oh and open the windows, loads and loads of fresh air in there.

I had this. After some frantic googling I found the best solution was a cube of biological washing powder dissolved in some water. That did the trick.
