Helpful Heloise Hints?

Anybody got any ideas on how to get that “puke” smell OUT of a mattress and blankets? We are on wash #2 and it still kind of stinks.

Another question…how in the world does such an inordinate amount of puke come from a preschooler who has barely eaten anything in weeks?

    AWWW poor little gal, poor you!!

    Have you tried Amaze? Not sure if you have it there but it is made by sunlight, it’s a powder but if you mix it with some hot water and put a light paste over the pukey area – let it sit for a few minutes then srub the heck out of the spot with hot, hot, hot water, then add some vineger, or vacumm with the arm and hammer pet odour powder… N… was such a puker (pyloric stenosis) so I had it everywhere and on everything – once it was between her crib, my bed and the wall – yuck – and she was only 3 weeks old.

    Hope things get better soon. 🙂

    I would try vinegar and water or a baking soda paste.

    Hope everyone feels better before mommy leaves and MOST importantly you don’t get it. Remember our girl’s weekend when a certain someone was not up to par?

    We use vinegar for urine accidents and it works great. I’m assuming that it would work just as well for the smell of vomit.

    I hope she’s feeling better SOON! Just as long as it doesn’t spread through the entire house….right?

    Thinking of you,

    Ugh! I hope you are able to get it out. Don’t you have a mattress protector, my dear?? That is my secret fear…it will be in the wash and another accident or puke incident will occur. The hints offered above sound like they would work.

    Hope she feels better real soon!

    Per Swistle, about half a box of baking soda is the key ingredient. Love your site-good luck w/ the laundry. : )

    I’m forever late on commenting… but like Leah… I was going to say follow Swistle’s advice. She said something like… use a 1/2 box of baking soda in the laundry… and she uses the other half in the bath with the stinky thrown up on kid. I tried to search her site for the actually post… but I realized I was spending too much time re-reading her site. lol
