    Baking soda. Baking soda helps to pull out and absorb bad odors. After the spill area has completely dried shake a layer of baking soda on the affected area. It’s best to let the baking soda sit on the spot for three or four days and then vacuum it up. If the smell is still present, repeat these steps***************************************************** Spraying vinegar upholstery will help break down the enzymes in the spilled milk, removing the odor. Use a spray bottle and mix four parts water to one part vinegar. Spray the spill area until it is drenched with the vinegar mixture. Allow it to soak for five hours and then blot it dry with a clean washcloth. ******************************************** Enzyme sprays. If the odor is still hanging in there it’s time to break out the big guns. Enzyme sprays are environmentally friendly and use proteins and enzymes to break down the molecular structure of stains. Enzyme sprays are activated when they are hit a stain or odor and the bacteria eats away the mess while eliminating the odor. Enzyme sprays are available at most home improvement stores or online.

    The enzyme cleaner for removing pet odors is excellent for any biologic spills. The secret is to just pour it on and let it dry on its own. The enzymes actually eat up the offending material.
