    two days ago I bought a gallon of milk and it leakd onto my backseat. I hit it with hot water when I got home that day and sopped it with bathtowels. Today it smells like something died in there so I bought two cans of cleaner with "odor-x" and sprayed the shit outa the area. Then I hit it again with hot water and more cleaner and two more bathtowels sopping it up AND grabbed a hair dryer and went at it with that and a towel.
    I will go down there after I eat and see if the funk went away. Meantime-are there any secret remedies for this? Thanks

    Been there done that. I also spilled milk in my Mercury about 3 months ago. I tried just about everything I could and nothing helped besides time after about 2 months it finally disapeared . It was summertime and it was unreal how bad it stunk the following day. I tried odoban and some stuff called positive d and all it did was add to the stench. Someone said vinegar? It stunk worse than milk and then could not get that smell out.. Good luck. If you have any luck with anything post it because I am sure at some point in life I will do it again.

    Im thinking the best thing would be to put a box of Arm & Hammer in the truck.....Let it absorb the scent.

    Thanks guys for the comeback-I have been fishing around and the baking soda sounds like the best bet, Chris-matter of fact they want me to spread it onto the affected part of the seat and spritz cold water over it and let it set overnight. I trust it won't discolor the seat? My initial effort decreased the odor like 35%, it is stubborn. I'll put it in here if I find a fix:)

    FWIW between a healthy dose of baking soda overnight and a few sprays of Febreeze auto the smell is pretty much gone. Thanks a lot for your help:)
