How do you get rid of the smell of sick from a thick rug? My niece was sick all over it and I can't get rid of the stench.

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. : )
