Required Tools

To clean a milk stains from a carpet, you’ll need: 

  • Carpet cleaner, shampoo, or white vinegar
  • Carpet Deodorizer or baking soda
  • Hot water
  • Bucket or container for cleaning solution 
  • Paper towel or cloth
  • Vacuum
  • Rubber gloves (optional) 

Step One: Remove Residue

First, you will need to remove any solid residue from the carpet. Milk can leave a sticky film on your carpets, so it is important to remove this before you start cleaning. You can do this by blotting the area with a clean cloth or paper towel. Be sure to avoid scrubbing the area, as this will only spread the milk around and make the problem worse.

If some of the milk has dried, be sure to gently scrape it off. Solid residue will need to be removed, even if it’s not as stinky.

Step Two: Treat the Milk Stain

Once you have removed the solid residue, you will need to treat the stain with a carpet cleaner or shampoo. If you don’t have any carpet cleaner on hand, you can make a simple solution at home by mixing one part vinegar with two parts water. After applying the cleaner or shampoo to the stain, be sure to blot it dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.

Step Three: Deodorize

Finally, you will need to deodorize the area to remove the Milk Smell. There are a few different ways you can do this. You can either use a commercial carpet deodorizer, or you can make your own by mixing one part baking soda with two parts water. Once you have applied the deodorizer, be sure to vacuum the area to remove any residue.
