How to Clean Vomit
If you have kids or dogs (or a wild partying family member!) - you might really appreciate this tip!

Before I did the following, I would use paper towels to remove as much as possible.


table salt, white vinegar, dish/laundry detergent, rubbing alcohol, warm water and a sponge.

1. Grab a mixing bowl, pour 2 cups of warm (not hot) water in it, and stir in 1 tbsp of table salt.

2. Once the salt is dissolved, mix in ½ cup of white vinegar, 1 tbsp clear dish or laundry detergent, and 2 tbsp rubbing alcohol

3. Now grab a clean kitchen sponge, dip it in your vomit cleaner, and press it into the vomit.

4. Do this several times so there is cleaner all over the stain. Grab a new old towel and blot just like before. This will be repeated as often as necessary until no more vomit is being transferred to the towel.

5. Each time you blot with the towel, you will be removing vomit. Have an extra towel or two on hand.
