Apart from the advice given by my friend who says I have to get rid of the car

Any cleaning tips?

bicarbonate of soda - mix to a paste, spread on, leave to dry, hoover up.

If that fails, professional valet I think.

sorry, dumb question, is bicarbonate of soda the same as baking soda?

SoupDragon Fri 18-Feb-05 08:37:41

Um... I think so!

It smells like sick.

Had to drive back from London with windows open

We had a sippy cup full of milk get lost under a seat in the car recently. When I eventually found it, a few weeks later, I tried to salvage the cup by washing it out. Big mistake. I almost puked the second I took the lid off because the smell was so bad. I threw it in the rubbish, but the whole kitchen smelled, even after I took the rubbish out.

So I can imagine the smell in your car ...

I did this once - took about a week for the smell to clear. I did attempt to clean it up with detergent and steam. After that, a daily dose of Febreeze seemed to do the trick.

Stopped off and bought Fabreze - made it worse. Now sick disguised with lemon bleach.

what will happen, will the milk remains just rot away leaving ...ta smell, or will it stink forever

SoupDragon Fri 18-Feb-05 08:48:27

It doesn't stink forever, the smell does go.
