Cleaning up vomit

What should I use to clean vomit up from a carpet, and also to neutralise the smell?

Somebody suggested TCP, or something like that, should I use this?

One of my flatmates friends got a little ill watching dissection last night.

Steam cleaner and Febreze, strictly in that order. Works well enough on dog sh*t

What are you doing dissecting bodies in your flat, anyway?

as an ex chemist
- (1)vinegar
- (2)Ammonia - mind your eyes

There are more drastic remedies, but its better to get the owner of the vomit to do the work. Vinegar will remove stains and ammonia should get rid of the smell. Dont use acid, acetone or any other solvent. The other solution is to train the cat-normally they will go for anything except there own s**t.

Other than that, tones of newspapers and hot water.

You might acre in the future to throw the party out at the slightest sign of weakness.

Nonono, we haven't dissected anyone in the flat for quite a while, there was a televised dissection on last night.

A steam cleaner is probably over budget, and unavailable at short notice.

Therefore....

I shall pop out, buy some febreeze and some bleach, come back, see if my lazy flatmates are up and available to be ordered to do some cleaning. If not, despite the fact they should be doing it, I know that if I don't clean it, it will simply stay for eternity.

Right, just read eupa's reply too. Don't think I can get ammonia anywhere handy here. Could pop along to the science faculty in the uni and see...

If I'd been awake, I would have thrown them out! Throwing up is not allowed, especially if you've been drinking, cos then it's a waste of good alcohol!

Whoa! You guys have done far too much drinking and throwing in your time!

Glad to see your wives/girlfriends/mothers made you clean it up yourselves though!

jimbo I did not mean ammonia 880 i ment the stuff you can pick up at the
local hardware store its aboutv 25% and makes your eyes weep no end and chokes you to death as well. The 880 is about 95% and that will kill the whole neighbour hood.
