How to clean up vomit immediately

Cleaning vomit can be kinda disgusting and hard at the same time. But I will now show you some steps needed to clean away vomit stains immediately.


Things you’ll need:

  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Spoon
  • Small trash bag


Baking soda method


Step 1. Scoop up the puke with the spoon

As disgusting as this might be, it is something that has to be done. I recommend that you use a disposable spoon as they are cheap and disposing of them won’t be an issue. After scooping up the vomit place it into a small trash bag. Scooping up the puke will make the rest of the cleaning process really easy.


Step 2.  Pour warm water all over the vomit stained area

Just get pour some warm water on the vomit-stained area. The reason why you should do this is that the warm water will loosen some of the puke stains off of the carpet making it easier to clean.


Step 3. Sprinkle baking soda all over the vomit stained area

Sprinkling baking soda all over the vomit stain will deodorize and clean that part of the carpet. Let the baking soda sit on the carpet for an hour.


Step 4. Use a clean cloth

Use a clean cloth to gently brush away the vomit stain and the baking soda residue. Doing this will also loosen up the vomit stains.


Step 5. Vacuum the baking soda residue

All you have to do is just vacuum away all the baking soda and puke residue. If you are worried about getting puke stains inside of your vacuum well don’t because the baking soda should’ve already made the vomit stains dry up. And you can just empty the vacuum after using it.


After following these steps your carpet should be clean but there is another type of vomit stain that I’ll show you how to clean.
