    So I went on a bit of a mad one last night. Half a litre bottle of Russian Standard at pres, hit me all at once, ended up blasting my housemates with our fire extinguisher, you know how it is.

    I wake up and my bed/floor is covered in sick. I had meatballs for dinner; rich in cumin/paprika etc so I cannot for the life of me get it out of the carpet/mattress. It is not hoovering up and I've used an array of cleaning products and it won't budge.

    Minions of TSR and upholstery magicians, how do I clean my carpet/bed?

    Ps drink sensibly, I was an idiot for drinking so much so quickly.

    Well… I reckon you should write off the mattress as soon as possible… But… desperate times and desperate measures…

    Can't you save up to replace the mattress? Also, shops like The Range will allow you to hire an industrial carpet cleaner: http://www.therange.co.uk/fcp/conten...doctor/content

    Cheap option is to just flip the mattress.

    Sounds like the only way for it to be cleaned properly is to rent yourself either a carpet cleaner (can also clean the bed with a hose attachment) or hire a professional. Shouldn't be more more than £50 to get a professional, less to rent but it'll get the job done properly.

    if you hire a professional instead of rent go on the the Liverpool trading facebook pages and ask around, make sure you get someone with good recommendations/ reviews there are some dodgy ones on there.


    Also lol, you're a right tit.

    I usually handle alcohol really well, never do anything stupid apart from the occasional hook up, but last night was carnage.

    Hit me so hard. Haven't drunk like that in years.

    Ugh £50. I move out soon anyway........

    And yeah, it's not like me to drink enough to throw up but whatever, it happened. I'm lucky I didn't choke in my sleep, I don't even remember being sick.

    Still hungover

    well it's only going to come out of your deposit anyway, and it'll be cheaper than £50 if you just rent the vac like someone above posted. £20 for a day.

    I guarantee whatever you don't pay now to fix it you'll end up losing at least double from your deposit.

    My deposit scheme is amazing, it's protected with a passcode. My landlord has half the passcode, and I have the other half so he can't touch the money.

    It will be alright, he won't charge me if I conceal it enough. Lots of fabreeze.
