Teenage dd had a friend over last night, who ended up drinking too much and throwing up everywhere. They haven't cleaned it properly and the smell is lingering 🤮 What gets rid of it???

Soda water

Bicarbonate of soda. Thick layer. Leave on for 24 hours. Scrape off, then hoover. Dd threw up all over my new car. I did the bicarbonate of soda thing and never smelt it again.

Yes bicarbonate of soda as above

Pet enzyme cleaner like Simple Solution. I use it for all manner of 'natural' emissions and a few other things as well. Designed for vomit, pee and poo, so very handy to keep around, although hopefully you won't need it for all 3.

Or white vinegar.

Get your self to pets at home and buy an enzyme cleaner designed for clearing up vomit. The enzymes break down the protein and eliminates the smell. Magic stuff.

Biological washing powder, sprinkled dry onto dry carpet, left as long as possible (pref overnight) and then vacuumed up.
