  • ODOBAN, hotels and businesses use it. You can get a small spray bottle of it at Walmart or a gallon of it at Sam's Club

  • ozium, it is intended to be sprayed in the air but you can spray fabric without stains, my mom had a puky dog, it is a hospital grade germ killer (for the air) and you cant stay in the car for a few minutes after spraying. i bet walmart has it.

  • I scrub scrub scrub with bleach, shampoo with bleach to kill the bacteria that causes the smell. Then if after a thourough soaking wet cleaning if it still smells you can let it dry and put baking soda on it and let is sit overnight and vacum it up.
