So, the kid finally puked all over his room, onto the carpet. How a 17-month old can upchuck that much stuff is beyond me, but it's up to daddy to clean it up while the baby laughs uncontrollably at what he just did.
I Googled my heart out, but I couldn't find anything solid on what to do to clean up puke from carpet. I found solutions from the simple (e.g. flood with water, coat in baking soda, vacuum up), to the complex (e.g. make a 12-step cleaning solution using common household chemicals I have never even heard of, flood a billion times, dry, etc).
I have yet to find two resources that suggest even similar things, and the comments for all the the solutions I found say they don't work.
So, what does FOO suggest I do to finish cleaning the stuff up?
So far I removed the chunks, dabbed a solution of 1/3-water + 1/3-rubbing alcohol + 1/3-vinegar on the carpet, covered in baking soda, and vacuumed it up. It worked fairly well, but not completely. Every now and then we get a waft of puke smell coming from the room, but for a few moments here and there we can't smell anything.
The other problem is that it's been three days now since the puking occured (although I did the cleaning the same night it happened).
Any ideas? I figure if any group of people know about puke, it's FOO people!
