    Default Any suggestions to get vomit out of a mattress?

    As the title suggests...
    DD vomited all over her bed and floor last night... Then decided not to wake us in case we got cranky!?!?
    Instead she just turned around and slept with her head down the other end
    So as a consequence it had about 5 hrs to soak in

    Any tips??

    Oh the poor thing! No advice sorry, but I think I remember my MIL saying that you can use a paste made out of bicarb to scrub the mattress and then let it air out? Hopefully someone else has some answers for you.

    Bicarb might work! I wish she'd told us straight away <img src="images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" smilieid="11" class="inlineimg"

    You can also get sprays that are used for dog wee, vomit, etc that have an enzyme in it thats designed to eat and remaining matter so it gets rid of the smell as well.

    Works a treat as DS2 used to vomit on cue (if he didnt want to do something) so the carpet got a good soaking. Using this stuff was great....I just soaked the stain with it and it would dry and smell would be gone.

    If you can get the mattress out in the sun as well to dry.

    My DS once vomitted all over my bed after drinking (watered down) orange vege juice! We have a carpet shampooer with an upholstery attachment and that worked wonders! Maybe you could rent on from the super market. Has to have an attachment head though.

    If you can, put the mattress out in the sun after you've cleaned it with the bicarb. We did this at work when kids vomited or wee'd on cushions, mattresses, etc., and the smell would go away.
