How to Get Rid of the Smell of Vomit in a Carpet Whether your friends took one too many tequila shots or your toddler had his first foray into the world of seeing his dinner in reverse it is time to get that smell out of the carpet. Well cover a few methods that will not help you forget what you have seen but will help you forget what you have smelled. Soak the area in water to loosen any leftover residue. Try not to allow excess water to ooze into other areas of the carpet as this may spread the stain and make it hard to vacuum all the water out of the carpet.Brush a small amount of laundry detergent into the wet carpet with a stiff bristled cleaning brush. If you are worried about your carpet you can dilute it with a little bit of water. A bit of peroxide is another possible additive but only if your carpet is white you do not want to risk making the stain worse.Vacuum out the soapy water with a shop vacuum or wet/dry vacuum. If you do not have a vacuum soak up the liquid with a dry towel. A wet vac will be much more efficient but a towel can work it just may take an hour or two sitting on the stain for the towel to absorb everything.Wet once more with water to rinse the carpet of excess soap. Brush it in gently lifting the soap to the top if any has become entrenched in the fibers. This step may have to be repeated several times to remove the soap from the carpet fiber.Vacuum again to remove excess water and allow area to dry. Dont jump to any conclusions yet you do not know what the carpet will be like until it is completely dry. So if the stain or smells persist give it a bit of time and then try some alternate methods. It may just be a waiting game.Finish with Febreze if desired. Why settle for no smells when you can have good smells? Spray some Febreze over the area if you would like to seal the deal.
