It happens to all of us: we get sick, something we ate doesn’t agree with us, or maybe we just had a little bit too much to drink, and before we know it, we’re throwing up the contents of our stomachs all over our carpets. While this is far from an ideal situation, it should be dealt with immediately in order to prevent the smell and stains from penetrating our flooring. With this in mind, this post will share a few tips on how you can clean up vomit off your carpet.

How to Clean Vomit Off a Carpet

  1. We don’t need to tell you that this won’t be pretty, so our first tip is to prepare yourself mentally and physically to clean up the vomit. Put on clothes you don’t mind ruining and gloves, and cover your mouth and nose before you start cleaning.
  2. Then, you’ll have to grab a spoon and clean the excess puke off. Be very careful not to scrub the area, as this can help the stain penetrate your carpet further. Likewise, use paper towels to absorb some of the vomit.
  3. The next step is to mix vinegar, water, and dishwashing soap into a spray bottle and spraying the area generously. Blot the area repeatedly to help lift the stain off your precious flooring. Continue with this process until you’ve gotten all of the puke off.
  4. If the disgusting smell still lingers after you’ve gotten rid of the stain, you can sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the affected area. Allow it to absorb the odors for about 15 minutes, and then vacuum it away.
  5. You’re almost done with this nightmare! The final step is drying your carpet effectively. To do it, you can use a clean towel to dab the area and absorb the moisture. Likewise, open windows, doors, and turn your fans on to allow air circulation.
