The kids spilt milk in our car last week, smell is rank, have taken the matt out and washed but hasnt quite sorted it, plus under the matt is pretty pungent too.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. Is there anything from Halfords or alike or any specialists that deal with his sort of thing?

Many thanks

Joe

I spilt chocolate milk all over the carpet of my paggered car. I left it to dry and the smell stopped after about 3days smile

I'd recommend scrub and clean it the best you can, then leave it to dry!

Don't cry tongue out

AutoGlym? Do some good interior cleaner, removes blood and vomit (it's on the bottle)

www.cleanmycar.co.uk and look for the interior cleaners that biodegrade smells like milk.

When this happened to us we cleaned with all sorts of things but the smell remained, someone suggested watered down vinegar, worked a treat!

Scrub with a solution of Bicarbonate of Soda, then clean with regular upholstery cleaner afterwards - that stuff gets the smell out of just about anything.

Bought an Alfa 166 years ago and found the owner had spilt milk in the boot - mouldy milk and the smell was something else.

Washed with water + bicarb, then dabbed with white water/vinegar mix. Left a open bowl with vinegar in the car overnight and smell disappeared.
