Two days ago,dd chucked up. Although I've scrubbed her carpet each day, I just can't seem to get rid of the awful smell.

If anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful.... thanks

wash the area with bicarb of soda.

I remember my mum always rushing out with a bottle of soda water (never mind me, straight for the carpet!)

Madie, I had this problem recently and I found a sit somewhere that recommended putting bicarbonate of soda into the water when rinsing the carpet.
Afterwards, I mixed a few drops of Tea tree oil into some water, shook hard and sprayed that on to the sicky area.
I don't know which of the above worked but the sicky smell is no longer there.
Good luck

bicarbonate of soda solution has been very effective on the numerous times when ds has thrown up.
