How to Remove Vomit Odor

Ughhhhh! That’s disgusting! But it happens – and someone has to do the dirty work. And even worse, if you don’t get it right, you may get a really offensive odor powerful enough to knock your socks off! If you are lucky and it falls on hard surfaces like flooring, it’s not too bad;  you wipe it away, get out the mop and it’s a bit disgusting, but easy enough to clean thoroughly. But if it happens to porous surfaces such as carpet, or your car seat or the sofa, then it can be more difficult. All purpose cleaner Nok-Out is up to the task and you can remove vomit odor easily. Nok-Out to the Rescue!

First Off…

Use old towels to clean away as much of the matter as possible.  Use a wet rag to try and blot up or wipe away as much of that stuff as possible.

Hard Surfaces

After you have cleaned away the mess, spray the area with Nok-Out, allow it to sit for a minute or two and then wipe away any excess fluid. All of that stuff should be gone now. Spray the area one more time with Nok-Out and then walk away and allow it to air dry naturally.
It’s easy to remove vomit odor from hard surfaces.

 Removing Vomit Odor From Porous or Soft Surfaces

Remember that Nok-Out must come into direct contact with all of the odor source to successfully remove the odor. So wherever that smelly stuff got to, Nok-Out needs to go there also to be able to do its job.

Soft porous surfaces present a bit more of a challenge because the liquids from the vomit are likely to have been soaked up, absorbed, or in other ways to have penetrated to the depths of the material. The stuffing in a sofa or chair, or the various layers that comprise your carpet can absorb these liquids and this makes it difficult to achieve direct contact with all of the smelly stuff. And, that stinky stuff may be highly acidic which can leave a permanent discoloration.

One solution is to dilute Nok-Out by 4:1 (water to Nok-Out) and apply it liberally to these areas. The idea is that you will have a lot of cleaning fluid to help to ensure that you get direct contact with 100% of the smelly stuff. This is necessary because as an oxidizer, Nok-Out does it’s work when it comes into direct contact with that stuff. If you miss a spot, then you won’t be able to remove all of the odor. If gravity pulled that stinky stuff down into the cushions, then having lots of cleaning fluid to work with allows gravity to pull Nok-Out down to the same places. Nok-Out will remove the odor from vomit as long as it can have direct contact with all the stinky stuff.  It works!

Should I Mix Nok-Out with other Cleansers?

Never mix Nok-Out with acidic cleaners such as vinegar or citric cleaners because Nok-Out – like most cleansers – is alkaline.  If you have already used vinegar on the site, you can spray a baking soda/water solution (1 tsp to 1 pint) on the area and that will neutralize the acids.  If you have reason to believe that the vomit was highly acidic, it might be a good idea to pre-treat the area with the baking soda solution to give Nok-Out a better working environment as well.  Nokout removes odor from vomit easily.  Let it do the hard work for you!

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.

Best Odor Control for carpet

Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products

Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor

I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Rotten Potato Smell Gone!

There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!
