  • That is the ickiest smell! At Sam's there is this product called Odo-ban. It works for everything. It kills mold, bacteria, all kinds of stuff! It even has directions for getting odors out of pretty much anything.. from carpet, bedding, furniture, laundry, to disinfecting your home. It has tons of uses and is relatively inexpensive. It has a eucalyptus smell (some people don't like it but its not horrible) and I havent found anything yet it didn't take the smell out of. Hope it works! good luck.

  • Try cleaning it good with a carpet shampooer,and then put plain water and Downy in the cleaner.then put baking soda on it and leave it for a while then vacuum. If ya need help,I'll be by .lol

  • Sorry I didnt answer back to your question yesterday (the one about the odo-ban) I honestly dont know if you can get it at Walmart.. but you can go online and get a guest pass if you dont have a Sams membership.. This will allow you to get in for a day and you can pick some up.. they sell it in a big bottle that comes with a pre mixed spray bottle (mixed to the disinfect concentration) and the big bottle lasts a reallllly long time.The bottle is like ten bucks so its not crazy expensive either. Hope you get that smell out.. If it is molding the odo-ban will kill that. (thats why I like it so much) and you can even put it in the steam vac and clean the carpets with the odo-ban in your mixture. Good Luck!

  • Pour baking soda on it. Smoosh it in really good with your fingers. Let it sit for a day, then vacume it up. Baking soda soaks up smells, like it does in the fridge! Same concept.
