Maybe you can help me. This past week I went and bought some milk and someone 
left it in my car until the following day and it had leaked on my carpet, 
under the spar tire. It is 85-90 degrees and with the windows close in the 
car it is hotter. 
What can i do to get the milk odor out of the carpet. i have tried vinegar 
and water,febreeze it still is an unpleasant smell which we can not go in the 
car as we gag. hope you can give me some advise on how to get this odor out. 
thank you..kathy

My standard technique is to pour grape juice on the area in question and
let it dry, since grape juice also has a strong odor, but it is a much more
pleasant one.

Good luck,
