If you have a dog, chances are you’ve had to deal with the occasional vomit stain on their bed. Vomit can be difficult to clean up, and the smell can linger for days. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to get the vomit smell out of your dog’s bed.
The first step is to remove as much of the vomit as possible. Use a paper towel or rag to blot up as much of the vomit as you can. If the vomit is dry, you may need to use a spoon or spatula to scrape it off. Once you’ve removed as much of the vomit as possible, you’ll need to clean the area.
Mix a solution of one part white vinegar and one part water in a spray bottle. Spray the area with the solution and let it sit for a few minutes. This will help to break down the vomit and make it easier to remove. After a few minutes, use a damp cloth to wipe away the solution and any remaining vomit.
Once the area is clean, you’ll need to deodorize it. Sprinkle baking soda over the area and let it sit for a few hours. The baking soda will absorb any remaining odors. After a few hours, vacuum up the baking soda.
If the smell is still lingering, you may need to use a commercial odor remover. There are a variety of products available that are designed to remove odors from fabrics. Follow the instructions on the product and apply it to the area. Let it sit for a few hours and then vacuum it up.
Finally, you’ll need to wash the bedding. If the bedding is machine washable, use a mild detergent and wash it on the gentle cycle. If the bedding is not machine washable, you can hand wash it in a sink with a mild detergent. Once the bedding is clean, hang it up to dry.
By following these steps, you should be able to get the vomit smell out of your dog’s bed. It may take a few tries, but eventually the smell should be gone. If the smell persists, you may need to replace the bedding.
