How do I get the smell of puke out of my tan couch..(serious question) adult content

so my son stayed home from school today and I have a reclining couch, eache side does it's own recline....and the fabric is micro suede...my son reclines in one half and was saying he wants to throw up so I gave him and ice cream pail....He misses it and gets his whole side of the couch and recliner/ foot rest wet.
So I tried to clean it all up with scotch guard oxy clean spray..when it dried it reeked! so I sprayed lysol on the areas and it still reeks

  • When my aunts dog puked on her couch, she kept spraying Febreeze on the spot. She used the one for pet odors. It worked after a couple of times. I did that when my son puked all over my bed and his when he had 2 asthma attacks in one night.

  • Natures miracle.

    If you smell it, that means it is still in/on the sofa.

  • Put vinegar in a spray bottle with water (1/2 and 1/2) spray and let sit.
