Pull the carpeting out, rip off the pad and toss it. Take the carpeting to the car wash, hose it down. Throw it on your roof of the house to dry, or over a ladder (sun and slope to drain). Go to home depot and buy new padding, glue in place with some spray glue, replace carpeting once dry.
I am liking this idea!
Here is what I am thinking so far.
I think I still have some of that milk in areas I can't see or reach. The vehicle still smells sour. The Natures Miracle stuff did wonders but it didn't finish the job. The worst of it is over though. I no longer feel like wretching when I am in the vehicle.
This is what I am thinking of doing.
* Put the passenger seat back in place so I can use the vehicle properly for the rest of the week.
* Wait until Friday night and see if smell is still present or not.
* If the smell is still strong and present then Saturday morning unbolt the middle row of seats. So far I can see 8 easy to access bolts. Not sure if there are others. I am still trying to figure that piece out. Once those seats are unbolted I can finish removing the carpet.
* Cut the passenger side piece of carpet On the hump so it detaches from the drivers side. This will prevent me from having to damage/throw away the padding on the drivers side. As far as I can tell it didn't receive any of the spilled milk.
* Take the passenger side carpet and cargo area carpet to the car wash, power wash the hell out if it. Shop vac excess water from it Then hang up in yard to dry.
* Finish cleaning interior and a spray down with the natures miracle on last time.
* When carpet is dry reinstall it with seats. Worry about fixing the lost padding later.
I was thinking of a professional detail and steam cleaning but...that may cost me $100 or more that I do not have. And there is the possibility they will not get the smell out of it.
