Anyone got any advice?

I hosed ours off outside with laundry soap. It worked just fine.

I always just wiped mine down with some bleach water and then hung the pad on the bottom out to dry and set up the pack and play out in the sun to dry..... I'm not sure if that's the best way but it worked for us

I clean the mattress pad with Lysol wipes and my steamer, but for accidents like that I just wash the fitted blanket and whatever other items the throw up touched

The actual pack and play I put in the tub with detergent. Let it sit for an hr and rinsed it off outside and let it air dry

My husband's idea was to take it to work and hose it down with the pressure washer lol
With it being so cold outside will it dry?

 I would use a bucket of soapy waterand then a hose-yes it will dry-you can partially dry it outside and then put it in the house in front of a radiator.

I used Dawn and a cup of water with a cap full of bleach

I would probably set it up inside if it's really cold possibly near a heater vent or fireplace if you have one

I had the same thing happen once. Gross!!
Soap and water scrub but it never looked very good. I agree with hose outside if possible.

Usually just hose it down with soap and let it dry. Once I put some soap in before a thunderstorm. The next day it looked brand new. Like fresh out the box new lol.
