I was taking my boys on an all day car ride through the badlands of Alberta. Much geocaching and hunting of dinosaurs was planned.
After only 30 minutes on the road, my youngest coughed and handed me the iPad from the backseat. (I believe in iPads, not minivans with built in DVD players). It looked like snot, smelled like vomit, and my fears were realized as I turned around to hand him back his cleaned device. A worried little munchkin was letting his breakfast fly all over the back seat.
I pulled over, stripped him, tossed him back in the carseat to take back home. The car was a little rank, and so instead of a day chasing treasure, I packed my oldest back in the car for a visit to the detailer to clean out the smell. About 3 minutes away from the autoshop, my son burped from the backseat and said “Daddy, I just puked a bit in my mouth, but it’s okay. I swallowed it.” I honestly didn’t think anything of it, until 2 blocks later when he was letting it go in waves while I was stuck at a red light.
How do you get the smell of vomit out of your car? Let’s run you down all the things I’ve been doing for the past week.
