Is there anything worse once it's sat around a day or two? Here's my issue. I took my garbage to the dump and one of the bags that had spent grain in it tore a little bit, and spilled the tiniest amount of grain and "juice" in the back of my vehicle.

I have tried so many different cleaners and sprays and I cannot get the smell out! My wife is pretty upset about this. Any suggestions on how to get this smell out of my car?

I feel like that Seinfeld episode for those of you that are fans. Please advise.

In the trunk? Pull the carpet out and spray it down. The whole back carpet should come out of most cars. If it is an SUV/mv then get a carpet cleaner. Rent a rug doctor. Use the pet odor soap with it.

We have a RDJr and it is a life saver........

The woolite pet spray stuff from walmart has done wonders for different things for me.
