I had someone to throw up on my carpet the other day and well I have scrubbed and well I seem to be having trouble getting the smell out! I used pinesol and even sprayed the ares with lysol and when area dried I used carpet fresh and well the smell is still there. Do you think this liquid lysol will helo? I have raised the window s in the room to air it out but it is still in the carpet the smell that is!

pour baking soda onto the area and leave it over night, if you dampen the rug and scrub in the baking soda it may help. Leave it dry and vaccum it up in the morning.

That is a tough smell to remove. I would try either using vinegar on it. Soak it in, then paper or towel absorb. Otherwise,try a carpet cleaner. I hope this works dear.

I have heard of a couple of tricks: Placing a bowl of vinegar in a small room with the carpet and replace it each day with a new bowl till the smell is gone. Rub it in with a 3% peroxide solution, let it dry and repeat the process till the smell is gone. Rub toothpaste on it, let it be there for a while then clean it off. But this one is pretty much like the peroxide I guess since toothpaste contains peroxide, might get a carpet smelling like toothpaste in return though I guess, so minty or something :P.

baking soda is wonderful for this kind of thing and it is cheap. It also cleans coffee and tea stains without scatching delicate bone china

Try to find something that breaks up the odor, or find an odor remover. Some carpet shampoos have it already mixed in so you may want to look at the available carpet shampoos in your local supermarket.
