Default spilled milk in car

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).
Thanks for any help on this.

Take it to a carwash in the am, before the milk hardens and/or sours.
Dump some warm water
on the carpet, suck it up with the vacuum. The casein in milk can get
hard, like glue - I have
seen instructions to use amonia solution for removing milk PAINT; same
might apply to plain
milk if it is set. Got a shop vac? They sure come in handy.
