Default spilled milk in car

"Pdk Pdk" wrote in message
Won't go into HOW it happened, but today I broke a half-gallon
glass jar of milk on the front passenger floor of my car. Got up most
of the glass, but what's my next step to get the milk out of the carpet?
I'd like to avoid smells, stains, mold...whatever else comes with
spilled milk in the carpet. (The passenger area is lower than door edge
so I can't just squeegee it out, and I don't see me removing the entire
freekin' carpet from the car either).

Use old towels to mop it up. Use dry towels after the worst has been
removed. Press on them with your hands or feet and be patient ... so as to
allow enough time for the milk to flow into the towel.

Next, after you have mopped up as much as possible you will have to use a
mild detergent solution to scrub the carpet and repeat the mop up process.

If you do not get the bulk of the milk out of the nap, it is going to stink!

Or, take the car to a cleaning specialist and let them deal with it.
