    how can I get rid of the vomit smell out of the carpet from my 9 year old being car sick?

    my 9 year old was car sick on the weekend and got it all over the carpet in the car. I have tried carpet cleaners and nothing is working. It smells like it just happened. The other kids don't want to go in the car.

    Have you tried one of the proprietary fresheners like Febreeze?

    Zoflora is another good one, otherwise, the only thing I can suggest is to take the carpet out, wash with copious quantities of hot soapy water, dry as best you can and leave outside in the fresh air to dry thoroughly.

    If the carpets are damp, that will cause the smell to rise, whereas dry, that won't happen nearly so much if at all.

    Nicks answer sounds great - and I came to this question because my ten year old son threw up at 2am this morning.  I would suggest perhaps also sprinkle a little vanilla essence on the carpet to help you cope with the smell while the carpet dries out.

    Wash and a final rinse with a small quantity of synthetic vinegar does the trick. warmed vinegar left in rooms, that smell damp or of cooked food, especially seafood also works.

    Use vinegar and baking soda with a scrub brush. Works every time!  Peace!!

    beyond these great answers I recommend purchasing an antibacterial agent for prevention of bacterial build-up in the long term.  Microban is a great product for this and can be purchased at under the mold section.  It can be sprayed onto any surface that is not harmed by water.  Pricey but worth every penny in my opinion
