    Default Coffee Spillage in Foot Well

    We went on holiday last week a left a flask of coffee in the passenger foot well for a couple of days and it leaked .
    As you can imagine it stinks a bit and was wondering if anyone knew of a good remedy to get rid of the stink!
    So far have tried Oxy Clean and a turtle wax car upholstery cleaner, but no good.....
    Any help please?
    Thanks.
    Andy.

    Thanks for that chaps...I'm up for trying anything (to keep the wife happy - so there's no smell anymore!)
    I want to get it sorted for the pod, I dont want it smelling like a moldy old coffee shop

    just be careful with the TFR mate as it's quite strong acid (used for cleaning alloy wheels) ... make sure you do water it down if you use it. Autoglym sell a Carpet shampoo spray which you can spray on and leave or aggitate if required ... not sure if it's any better than VAX shampoo etc though as Mark sugested.

    Had another idea tonight, we have a hand held steamer, so I've give it a few blasts with that
    But although gone a little, the smell is still there . Have to try alternative methods I think

    My wife suggested wetting the stain with water then put some bicarbonate of soda on it. She say's it draws the stain & smell out, leave it for a few hours then hoover it up. Sound's silly i know but her mum used it on a 3 piece suite & it worked Just an idea m8

    1001 stain remover spray. Works every time. Leaves a lovely clean smell, too.

    A colleague at work said he once spilt a chinese takeaway (the sauce) all over his back seat. He tried everything to get rid of the smell but nothing worked. Tried bi-carb and it worked a treat.
    So I tried this tonight, soaked it in then mopped it up several times with a jeyes cloth and think its working .
    Think it'll need a few more goes each night, but looks like its doing the trick
