- 1 roll of paper towels
- 1 box of baking soda. It doesn’t have to be a new box. The one that’s been keeping the freezer fresh for the past couple of months will work just fine. Just take a sniff to make sure that it smells better than what’s on the bed now.
- 1 bottle of white vinegar
- 1 large bowl
- A vacuum with an upholstery attachment
Step 1) Fill half the bowl with vinegar and fill the other half with water.
Step 2) Gently dab up the liquid mess with the paper towel. Carefully remove any sheets and mattress covers for laundering later. Press firmly with fresh towels to absorb more liquid. Do not squeeze or twist the foam.
Step 3) Wet a paper towel with the vinegar/water solution and dab it where the vomit was. Press gently, then immediately use a fresh dry towel to mop it up. Keep this up until you’ve covered the entire stained area.
Step 4) Pour the whole box of baking soda onto the stain. Yes, the whole box. Spread it out so that you get a generous layer that extends a couple of inches beyond the stain(s).
Step 5) Let the baking soda sit there for a couple of hours. Then vacuum it up.
And hey presto! Order has been restored. Or, if it hasn’t quite, give the experts at Stone Surface Specialists a call at 801 856 0164.
