It was an innocent mistake.
A few weeks ago, I loaded groceries into the car, and forgot that the extra reusable bags I brought into the store, were thrown in a pile on top of an actual bag of groceries. Apparently, when I unloaded the groceries into the house, I assumed that I had unloaded everything– but the bag of groceries hidden by the unused reusable bags remained in the car.
Fast forward two weeks.
Rotted apple cider, greek yogurt, and cheese exploded in the trunk of my minivan, soaking deep into the carpet in the trunk of the car. The size of the stain runs the entire width of the car.
I’ve tried bleach, vinegar, carpet cleaner– everything. I’ve cut out the foam that went underneath the carpet of the minivan. I’ve scrubbed the carpet for days. Most of the smell is gone, but it’s still there.
I don’t know that I can do anything else, unless I actually cut out the carpet of the car. An enormous stain is still there, and it’s not coming out.
Right now I’m thinking I’ll have to get it professionally cleaned. But wanted to find out if there was anything else I can do.
