    So, I had to leave work early because of a stomache virus. I drove home and made it to within a few blocks of my house before I started puking and had to get out of the car in a busy intersection and hurl in front of all the passers by.

    So anyway... I managed to get a fair amount of puke on the cloth seat. Do you guys know any good ways to take care of it so that my car won't smell like barf anymore?

    vacuum, scrub brush, carpet cleaner, and some heavy deodorizer.


    Vacuum the excess up first, then spray the area liberally with the carpet cleaner. Let soak for a few minutes.

    Scrub at it with the brush and repeat as necessary.


    Once its all gone, douse that area with deodorizer like crazy!

    good luck :)

    I did the same thing early this summer. I was about 500 feet from my front door, turning into my street when I knew I had to hurl. I got my door about halfway open and spewed everywhere, all over the door panel, the instrument panel, etc. I then threw up a few more times in the shower.

    I wetvacced up the puke, scrubbed down the inteiror with woolite/water mix (see product list) and then sprayed Freebreeze all over the seat, carpeting and door panel. Seemed to work fine.

    Better to barf in the car when you're near home than two hours away, in the middle of the night. It was not a fun ride home seeing as I was the sober one, we scrubbed the hell out of it the next morning but the car just reaked because it set in overnight. Took about a week or so for it to completely go back to the normal smell, that's with a lot of re-cleaning. Do NOT let it sit.
