Quick, Clean Up That Throw Up!

For some, this is the most challenging part. There are those of us who can't even look at vomit, let alone touch it. Don't misunderstand us; we're not suggesting you prod anything with a finger. Nope However, a mask and gloves could make the job easier.  

Once you see the vomit, you need to act quickly. The more time the throw has to soak into the mattress or bed, the cleaner it will be. With increasing depth, the odor becomes increasingly difficult to eradicate. Put on your protective gear and hurry to clean up the vomit. You can use newspaper, paper plates, or anything else that can be thrown away to scoop up the majority of the vomit. A disposable plastic plate is another viable option.  

Clean the Sheets and Comforters

After you've cleaned up the majority of the vomit, you can either put the stained sheets in the wash right away or set them aside while you deal with the mattress first. If you ask us, the mattress should be your first priority, but ultimately the decision is yours to make.  

Be sure there are no vomit remnants on the bedding before putting it in the washing machine. Throw the sheets through a cycle that will kill any bacteria, eliminate the smell, and make them as good as new. Leaving your sheets out to dry in the air for a day after washing will also do wonders for their cleanliness and smell.

Thoroughly Vacuum The Affected Area Of The Mattress

To properly treat mattress odor caused by vomit, you should do this first. All you need now is some nerve and a damp cloth.  

Remove any vomit that may have seeped through the sheets by gently wiping the affected area. The trick is to be patient and gentle; the spot should never be rubbed or scrubbed. Doing so can make matters worse by pressing the vomit further into the fabric of your bed.  

Discard the cloth once you're done, as the odor will have transferred to it.  

Use Baking Soda To Treat The Area

A box of baking soda should be poured over the wet mattress while the material is still damp to prevent the growth of mold. For complete coverage, spread a thick layer over the stain using your finger or a spoon.  

Baking soda has two distinct uses.  

  1. When used to absorb excess moisture, baking soda is extremely effective. In a literal sense, it will draw out moisture from the fabric and the inner layers of the mattress. The liquids that have settled just below the surface of the vomit can be easily removed in this way.
  2. A common household deodorizer, baking soda has a long history of use. Baking soda can eliminate any unpleasant odor, even the most noxious ones like vomit.

Using this method, you can remove urine stains from a memory foam mattress.

When I put baking soda on my mattress, how long should I let it sit?

For maximum benefit, the longer the better. This is why we warned you earlier that getting rid of vomit odors is not a quick process. It's reasonable to be worried about this. In case you find yourself needing to use the bed once more tonight, there is an answer to that, too.  

Baking soda should be left on a stain for at least 7 or 8 hours, according to experts. Therefore, if you began cleaning the mattress in the morning, it might be ready to use by night (although it would still need to air-dry the following day). However, if the vomiting occurred later, the baking soda should sit overnight. Just throw down a fitted sheet and cover the floor with a couple of big towels to make a bed. Even though this is less than ideal, and you may need to wash the towels and sheets afterward, at least you can sleep in the bed.

Please Tell Me How To Take Out The Baking Powder

To get rid of the baking soda, you can use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum. If you do not have a nozzle designed for this purpose, you can use a damp cloth or a brush and dustpan to get rid of the baking soda.  

Use a vinegar solution to get rid of the stain.

Pick an authentic, undiluted vinegar (avoid imitations labeled as such). To remove the stain, combine equal parts vinegar and water and spray on the solution. Remove the solution by blotting the fabric with a towel. I repeat: do not rub the area Spray the solution directly onto the stain, blot, and repeat as necessary to remove the stain.  

Following these steps will help you remove blood stains from your mattress cover.

Let the mattress dry in the air

Step seven: here we finish. It's yet another tedious procedure, I'm afraid. Something that must take its time How so It's an open invitation for mold and mildew when moisture is left to linger on fabric or inside a mattress. Your health, especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma, could be jeopardized once those jerks move in.  

A mattress can take up to eight hours to dry completely. Set up a fan nearby and direct the airflow at the sore spot. It can also be helpful to turn on any overhead fans to speed up the drying process.
