    DD's just been sick all over the landing carpet (and part of our bedroom carpet!). It's a particularly nasty-smelling incident so what I need is some advice on how to remove the smell from the carpet, preferrably without the need to remove the carpet entirely!! Any ideas folks??? :confused3

    No helpful suggestions DD normally managed to hit things that are washable. Hope your DD is OK (as is your carpet)

    I was always told to dilute Vinager and water together and soak the spot. Try in on an inconspicuous spot first. You may have to do it several times!!!
    Good luck!!!Hope she feels better soon!!! :thumbsup2

    Bicarb of soda :teeth: If it's stained, try making a paste, brush or rub it in, then remove the excess wait till dry and then vacuum.

    If it's just the smell you want rid of sprinkle some bicarb over the area, tap the carpet around the area so it sinks right in to the fibres, then leave for a while and hoover.

    Hope it works - the first day we moved into our brand new house, DS got a bug or something and threw up spaghetti bolognese all over the cream carpets in 3 different rooms :eek: Good luck getting rid of the smell :goodvibes

    If all else fails I know it sounds silly but try the spray you get from the pet shops to get rid of accidents. It kills the smell and leaves quite a pleasant odour. Good luck

    Would this work on coffee stains? There was an unfortunate incident involving hot coffee and my Dad's beige carpet this weekend and nothing's working.

    Thanks for all your replies and good wishes guys. I've been out to Sainsbury's and got a load of bicarb of soda and sprinkled it like Joh said. So far it seems to be working as it has certainly masked the smell. I'll leave it that way till morning and then vacuum it. Results, positive or otherwise will be posted then! Thanks again! :thumbsup2

    I've always used stardrops mixed with hot water to clean up after our animals - removes the smell too. Hope your DD feels better soon!

    Yuck!

    Our cat seems to like pucking on our landing! We will have to try the bicard trick next time :)

    You can always go and hire a carpet cleaner for a few hours (shouldn't cost much).

    We ALWAYS keep bicarb in the house - great on smells/stains, fridge freshener and great for indigestion too!
