Use warm water and detergent to clean up and scrub the area thoroughly. If you have fabrics, it’s best that you launder them properly as well.
Soak the area and the affected fabrics in white vinegar. Mop up with paper towels, or in the case of fabrics, launder them again and let dry.
Let the area completely dry. Use a fan or a hairdryer if you have to. Use an air freshener for the meantime to cover up the smell.
Mop up excess milk or blot the area with paper towels.
Pour baking soda on the affected area and sprinkle some cold water on top of the baking soda. Let it stand overnight.
Vacuum the baking soda to remove the residue. If there is still odor, take a bottle of club soda and give it a little shake before taking off the stopper to produce fizz. Spray on the affected area to make it wet but not soaking wet. The smell will get worse and then go away after a while.
This is a method that may cause some dismay for coffee addicts, but it’s all for a good cause.
Clean up the excess as best as you can.
Rub unused coffee grounds into the affected area, especially on fabrics and carpets. Leave them there for a few days to absorb and get rid of the odor.
Vacuum up the coffee grounds.

This method is usually for relatively small affected areas, since big areas will require a lot of lemons to help clean up.
Use heavy-duty detergent and some good-old fashioned elbow grease. Put in 20 minutes’ worth of intense scrubbing.
Sprinkle baking soda on top of the stain or the affected area. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Use more laundry detergent and more intense scrubbing with cold water.

Cover the area with a thick layer of bicarbonate of soda while the area is still damp. Leave as it is for 24 hours.
Clean up the residue; wash the area again with cold water and detergent. Leave another layer of bicarbonate of soda. Repeat steps one and two until the stain and odors are completely gone.
Just remember that mixing vinegar and baking soda at the same time has very negative effects! (although your kids will think it's pretty cool).
