    Default Help cleaning vomit

    Hi all, poor DS 8 months just did a massive vomit on our shaggy floor rug and I am having trouble getting it clean. The acrylic rug has strands 7cm long and the vomit was mostly yoghurt and specks of carrot so it really got tangled up in there. I scooped most off and sponged the area with warm water and dish detergent, but it's still pretty gross. Any suggestions welcome!

    Uh oh - it's huge so I am hoping we can salvage it, but it's so stinky!

    Yeh, LOL!

    We couldn't get the smell out of it! Maybe a couple days in the sun too?

    Could you hang it over the washing line & give it a hose. Rinse with vinegar and then dry in the sun?

    I second hosing and hanging. Ours was poo though when the girls had gastro. Not nice! We pressure cleaned it and hung it out, used cleaning vinegar and doused with No Vac.
    No stains or smell.

    Bicarbonate of soda when it's dry - leave the powder on over night- then Hoover it off- it takes smell away

    Thanks all for the great ideas - it's about the size of a double bed so too heavy for the washing line but will try and drape it over our outdoor setting for some air. Guess it's just the first of many times the rug will cop it.

    I'd drape it over the swing set do you have one of those?
