How to remove vomit from furniture?

Filed under: Toddlers Preschoolers

My 22-month-old daughter had tubes put into her ears on Friday. The surgery went well but she did have nausea from the anesthesia. Luckily for me, she waited until we got home to share that fact.

She threw up on our couch twice. We tried to wipe up as much "ick" as we could and took the cushion off to wash in the bathtub.

After letting it air dry on our porch, I can STILL smell vomit. As one friend put it gently, "Well, it only smells slightly like vomit when you walk in here."

How can I get the vomit smell out of the furniture? Does it just go with the territory of having kids? Can't I pick up something at the store specifically for this problem?
