    We had this a couple of weeks ago. Baking soda and white vinegar was suggested but we didn't have any. We used a foam carpet cleaner a couple of times and then febreezed it. Apparently pet smell freshener is quite good too.

    For pet mess, I've always used washing detergent (the clothes stuff) in warm water and give it a good scrub. When it's dry, like others said, sprinkle it liberally with bicarbonate of soda or baking powder and leave it for as long as you can then just hoover it up.

    Febreeze is brilliant. I used to get through a lot of it when I lived with smokers, it's very effective against all kinds of bad smells.

    I normally use warm water and laundry detergent and then carpet stain remover.

    try giving it another clean with some anti bac spray, it will kill the bacteria that make it smell, then use some febreeze or shake n vac x
