Dilution is the solution...........Dump water in the same area, work it in a
little and then immediately vacuum it back up. Do it as much as you can. Let
it air out and dry so no left over water causes rust. Works every time for me.
If the seat can come out, per repair manual or someone who has removed one,
take it out and clean the carpet underneath, then spray the seat cushion and
squeeze it out as much as you can. Try using a antibacterial soap diluted in
If it is the scent of a woman (or man) and NOT milk, try vinegar and water.
The back seat area tends to be used for alot of extra activities.

He brought the car to me yesterday and I removed the seats. I then cleaned
the seats and carpet with a steam extraction upholstery carpet cleaning
machine. I've looked everywhere for a wet pocket of milk but can't find it,
although the smell is easing with the cleaning. It's not the kind of thing
you want in a car that has less than three thousand miles on the clock.
If it gives you any comfort, I once drove my old Taurus through water so deep it
came inside and soaked the carpets. After a few days it really stank. I used
some foaming carpet cleaner on it, followed it up with some good smelling powder
type carpet cleaner and after a few days with the windows open, the smell
disappeared completely, never to return.
