Went to the grocery store today to get milk, bread, honey and some other goodies. Driving home, I heard a faint swishing sound but assumed it was my mind playing tricks on me.
Got home, opened the hatch on my Mini and found an empty gallon of milk. It has either leaked or burst open at some point, causing it to pool in my rear hatch area and managed to spill into my passenger rear seat foot well.
So I spent the past 2 hours with the carpet cleaner trying to get everything cleaned. I know I can't get under the rear seats right now (need a T50 torx bit I left at work) so that's going to stink to high hell. Goood thing it's going to only be 90° tomorrow...

@rctothefuture Yeah, not much worse you can spill in you car.
As I typed that I know there will be some horrific Oppo spilling story posted in 3…..2……1…..

@HoustonRunner I had a tail light bolt puncture a gallon of milk in the trunk of my Miata. I got home to a stream of white fuild draining unfer my rear bumper. With how awful that car was, spoiled milk would only have made it smell better...

@HoustonRunner The only one I've got is I had a coworker who used to eat bowls of cereal with milk while driving to work every morning, and leave a week's worth of dirty bowls piled up in the back seat at all times. He always insisted on driving every time a group of us went anywhere, because he was cheap and wanted to book the mileage, and the inside of his Camry smelled perpetually like stale, rotting milk. Would just get nauseating after more than a few minutes. Fortunately, he wrapped the car around a telephone pole drink driving one night, and seemed to keep the replacement cleaner

Crack the windows and let the interior breathe, at least?

@rctothefuture I would go buy another torx bit right now, if I were you.

When I saw your title, I wondered if you were commenting on this story.

@HoustonRunner I had a battery leak a bit in the trunk of a car. The smell never quite went away

Two kids and a wife who refused to restrict them to water only in the back seat of the car led to a Neon that perpetually smelt of old milk. No matter what I tried, there was no getting the smell out.

@rctothefuture Your car WILL smell of old milk. My recommendation is to pour a ton of baking soda on the carpet and buy an ionization machine. And also find a way to rent / borrow a carpet cleaning wet vac.

@rctothefuture the only thing I had success with getting rid of sour milk smell was washing with vinegar. I can't say it would work in a car, or that a vinegar smell would necessarily be better.

Got home, opened the hatch on my Mini and found an empty gallon of milk.
Now if you were in Ontario, Canada, that either wouldn't have happened or wouldn't have been as bad because this is what we use up here:
So effectively what we have here is a double bag... one larger bag with 3 smaller bags in it.

@rctothefuture not liquid but I did have half a MetRX bar melt under my seat. It smelled horrible.

@Manwich and once you open it it just stays partially open in the fridge? I'm clumsy and can picture repeatedly spilling bags of milk. I would snip the top and manage to drop it I am sure.

What the fook,
"immediately followed up by smelling/tasting the milk and looking at the container/label," the statement said. "It was found that the 'milk' served was actually a floor sealant resembling liquid milk.
Surely 'looking at the container/label' would of clearly said 'milk'.
That is just insane, why did Nana have it, why did they send it, why were the kids served it?
Is the education that bad that nobody can properly read and comprehend a label!?
This is such a WHAT THE FUCK moment.

@rctothefuture would you like to borrow my friend’s dog? Resume: once licked a crock pot of velveeta/sausage dip from the front passenger footwell.

@rctothefuture yeah, that’s one where you clean it as best you can and then go trade the car in before it starts to stink. F.

I always put groceries in a plastic tub for the trip home. Prevents leaks and makes it a lot easier to get them into the house.

@WhoIsTheLeader used the carpet wet vac spot cleaner thing last night. Pulled a bunch of white liquid out and it started to smell a little better. I sprayed some of my interior cleaner over the carpet and left the windows cracked so it could breathe.
Went to drive this morning to work and holy shit, it's awful. It's just bad, spoiled milk smelling. I'm going to get my Torx bit out tonight and try and get under the seat. If that doesn't help, I'll try an ozone machine.
