I left the windows of my car open several weeks ago and the rain got in and drenched everything. It appears to have dried out, apart from the constant condensation. However, I just can't get rid of the stench of what smells like sour milk.

Any thoughts?

It is really difficult to get rid of without lifting the carpets. It took me a few weeks by continuously daubing the carpet with carpet freshener and clothes freshener.


Put loads of tissue under the rubber mat to soak up any moisture left.

Would it be worth paying to get it professionally valeted maybe?

I did this before Christmas overnight when it was snowing :x

Kept heaters on full blast towards feet and drove around with windows slightly open so all moisture could escape with hot air. Did the trick, but took a week or two for the condensation to go away.

Get youself a sack of bbq charcoal, split open the bag and leave in the boot/rear of car.....
Will take a while but apparently the carbon soaks up the smell. :-D

Also if you have a garage or driveway you could hire a dehumidifier, left on all night should do the trick....

White vinegar soaks up smells really well, leave some in a bowl overnight for a few nights

We burnt dry a lamb bone at christmas and the smell was horrendous but the vinegar did get rid of it

I spilt a whole bottle of water in my car a little while ago and had this horrible smell. Took the mat out and brought it in to dry it out properly by the fire, and also put the heaters on full blast towards feet whenever I was driving around. Took a week or so but smell is gone now.

leave it running for hours with the heater on full pelt and window cracked down a touch to get shut of the condensation, i used to valet cars and this is by far the most effective way to do it, it will need hours though!!
