So What Happened?

I scrubbed the bag down with baking soda and water and it definitely did the trick! Thanks so much to everyone for your great advice!! :-)

Hey L.!
I've tried all the things listed below and to be honest, I ended up getting a new diaper bag. I have plenty if you'd like to have one of mine. Just let me know!

I tried all the old remedies to get soured milk out of the back seat of my car, and nothing worked. I ended up taking it in to be cleaned with the chemicals that the professionals use. So, my advice is to just replace the diaper bag.

Baking soda and water is what we used to get the smell out of our car.

I think you should wash it on delicate cycle in your washer and hang to dry. I have had to do this before.

You can also try Lysol a couple of times. That worked for me too.

I' ve heard that fabric softener sheets can help with foul odors. I tried it once a long time ago for a different nasty smell. I did have to use about 5 or 6, but the smell was better in the end. It wasn' t completely gone, but alot better.

Get a new diaper bag!! Or throw it in the washing machine. So many people get those free from the Dr. though Iw oudl try and get one there unless of course you got a fancy one then you will need to empty and scrub it out!!
