A few days ago our dog got locked in our car overnight by accident when we were bringing in the groceries. While in there, she threw up something in the backseat, looked like a dead bird. I cleaned it and sprayed it many times to no avail. The car smells so bad we can hardly ride in it. Any suggestions?

I strongly suggest you call the local fire department, they can help you to fumigate your car.

Years ago I was told that they have something they can use to help clean up the smells left in cars after a person dies by commiting suicide taking alot of pills while sitting parked in them and then isn't found for days sitting in the heat.

If they can not help your local mortuary (funeral home) may be of some help also is ridding your car of the offensive smells...I am sure they would know of a product that would solve your problem.

KEEP US All POSTED ON WHAT YOU DO DO OK?

Rent a "water extracter" and run it over where you cleaned up to lift up the moisture that has gotten down into the padding.

When the carpet man has shampooed he also extracts the water from the carpet ("STANLEY STEAMER" is what I consider our carpet man).

You might just want to call them to have them FIX this problem instead of fighting it yourself, I wouldnt think they'd cost that much besides wouldn't it be worth it rather then that horrible smell?

I need some advice on getting rid of odor after cleaning up dog vomit. My dog has gotten sick a few times while I was not home and vomited on the couch, I cleaned it with windex and then sprayed it with febreeze, but it still has a really bad smell. Help

How do you get the smell of vomit out of carpet? I have tried shampooing numerous times with no luck, the smell is still there and getting stronger because of the summer heat. Help!

There is a product at the pet store (and probably larger discount dept. stores that have pet departments) called "Nature's Miracle". You wet the smelly area with it and let it dry, and it is supposed to remove odors caused by the residue of animal (human or otherwise) "outputs". I have heard nothing but good things about it. I used it on my dog after she got skunked, and it got out residual odor.

Mix 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 ammonia, rub into the carpet and use a brush to rub it in. Take a clean, damp cloth and rub to get the excess out. To remove stains you can use this formula and use an iron over a damp cloth to help remove stains on the carpet also.

Try a product called Odo-Ban. It is used in nursing homes (among other places). Works really well!

Try using baking soda and vinegar and let in foam and rub it in. It may take a couple times of reapplying, but it will come out. Don't make the carpet sopping wet, it will take too long to dry and don't vaccuum until totally dry or the sick smell might get into vac.

Have you tried some kind of enzyme cleaning product? There is probably some decaying organic matter causing the smell. This kind of product is also used for pet "accidents".

Febreeze. Mist it 3 or 4 times and voila, it works. It doesn't mask the smell, it gets rid of it.

While you're at it make certain you wear thick waterproof gloves or you might be sick as well after direct contact.

The smell will disapate after a while, regardless, but white vinegar and clear dawn can work wonders in cool water. Try Club Soda as well. It's amazing on some food stains. Good luck and God bless you. : )

You could try plain white vinager and water mixed together, will also get rid of pet urine odor anywhere in the house. Wash well with soap suds first and let dry and then use the vinager solution. Works great!

Spraying with Lysol after washing might do the trick; keeping a product called XO on hand will clean and remove any and all odors. No harsh chemicals and can be found on QVC. com under Don Aslett's products. He runs the largest janitorial service and you can make it so you get emails notifying you when he is going to be on. Usually it's under problem solving. This is a fantastic product which cleans and removes ALL kinds of odors. It is used in hospitals and nursing homes. I've been unable to find locally at all. Had to order mine.

I'd go to a medical supply store and ask them. There has to be something for sale there, for caretakers who don't work in hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but have the same problem in their homes.

Good luck to you.

Otherwise I'd try an oxi type product, one that removes organic stains and smells, like blood.
