When you have to remove vomit smell from your carpet, you need to have a pretty tough nose of your own! 

Now you can easily remove vomit smell from your carpet When you have to remove vomit smell from your carpet, you need to have a pretty tough nose of your own!

Sometimes you or your loved one just doesn’t make it to the bathroom in time and you have to remove vomit smell from your carpet.
Sometimes it is your pet that might have left their mark on the carpet and you need to remove vomit smell from your carpet – which is probably less work and harm to your carpet than a human.  I had to find something good to say about that!
To remove vomit smell from your carpet requires a three step process.
  1.  Remove as much of the vomit material as possible by washing the area with a detergent that is safe for the carpet. This should take away most of the odor producing material.
  2. Remove the detergent and water with a wet/dry vacuum to get as much of the liquid up as possible. Vomit contains a large amount of stomach acid. This acid which is most of what smells and will destroy many materials if it’s not cleaned up. If the source is a small pet, the cleaning step can be as easy as blotting up the vomit with a paper towel. For larger animals and humans, the cleaning step must be more aggressive, i.e., wet/dry vacuum, OdorXit Concentrate  and water applied to the area.
  3. The third step is to completely wet the area with OdorXit Concentrate  mixed 1 ounce per (32 ounces) one quart of water and leave it to dry (slowly). OdorXit alters the remaining odor causing compounds so that they won’t produce odors and stop damaging the carpet.

Oh No!  The Vomit smell is in the carpet in your car

When you need to remove vomit smell from your carpet in your automobile, that can be a little more challenging.  That carpet is thin and has a thick absorbent padding (sound deadening material). Additionally, cars are exposed to very high temperatures when left in the sun. The high temperatures will make what would have been a small problem in a house carpet, much larger and stinkier in a car.

The good news is: the solution to remove vomit smell from your carpet in the car or in the house is the almost the same.

However, it may be necessary to remove both the carpet and padding from the car to wash and rinse it completely. Rinsing with a garden hose and nozzle is pretty effective and easy. After thoroughly rinsing, allow both the carpet and padding to dry.  You may want to focus a fan on the area to let it dry quickly.  This will prevent mold from growing there and creating another smell you’ll need to deal with.
TESTIMONIAL   My grandson stayed home from school last week because he was so sick. He couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time and threw up on my new white carpet. I had OdorXit on hand and followed the instruction you had on your website. The OdorXit Concentrate actually did get all the odor out. I am really grateful…it did smell bad.  Janet G. Whittier, CA*
*DISCLAIMER: The results described here aren’t typical and will vary based on a variety of factors.
If the odor comes back, the application of the solution didn’t get to all the smelly areas.  Apply (by spraying or pouring) diluted OdorXit (32:1) on the affected areas (the areas that still smell bad) and allow to dry slowly (not in the sun). When the OdorXit solution is dry the odor will normally be gone forever. If it is not, which is sometimes the case for vomit that has been left for several days, apply a second dose of OdorXit Concentrate solution . More that two applications is almost never required.

The recent storms that have ravaged multiple parts of the US have caused unprecedented damage. If you or your loved ones were affected by any of these storms, our thoughts and best wishes go out to you. Because these storms were so large in scale, people have experienced everything from moderate to complete damage.


Since getting rid of bad odors is our area of expertise, we want to help anyone who lost power for an extended period of time during one of these storms but didn't face complete damage to their home and belongings. Even if you're dealing with a refrigerator that smells incredibly bad due to it being fully defrosted and having items like frozen food decompose for days or even weeks, we want to go over how you can fully restore your appliance to its former condition.


5 Steps to Saving Your Refrigerator After Losing Electricity


The first step is to remove all of the spoiled food. This can be a truly nasty and smelly experience, which is why you'll want to wear a protective mask and gloves as you do it. Once your refrigerator is clean, take it outside and spray it out with a garden hose. If you have a truck or access to one, consider taking your appliance to a car wash and use the high-powered equipment to spray it out.


The next step is to spray one ounce of OdorXit Concentrate mixed with 30 ounces of water everywhere the refrigerator smells. That means spraying the insulation behind the doors,

under and around the door gaskets, the inside, behind the drawers and every little opening where the defrosted food might have dripped. Once the OdorXit Concentrate solution comes in contact with the rotten food smells, it will remove them from your refrigerator completely and safely.


The second to last step is to let the refrigerator dry outside then bring it back in the house. Don't panic if it still smells a little. It just means there is still at least one spot that hasn't been treated yet. You'll be able to knock it out by continuing to sniff and spraying wherever you detect even a slight odor.


The final step is to remember to be a good neighbor! Spray a few shots of the OdorXit Concentrate solution in the drain at the car wash or wherever you ended up treating your appliance. Anyone who comes by after you will be very glad you did.


By following the process above, it's possible to save even the worst smelling refrigerator, which in turns means saving hundreds of dollars by not needing to buy a replacement. So if you know anyone who's currently trying to restore belongings like their refrigerator, feel free to share this post with them by email or on Facebook.
