Crying Over Spilled Milk

I love all the different stages of sippy cups that they make. Although confusing, it's nice to slowly be able to wean the little ones off the sippers. Stella can drink out of a regular cup now but walking around with it is disasterous. Those sippy cups come in handy for the times when we need some drinks on the go or when we can't watch her every second.

Every morning Stella sits in her pajamas and drinks some milk out of her sippy cup as I get ready for work. I'm really happy that she doesn't take a morning bottle and figured this was a good thing for her.

The other day I was sitting on the couch, putting Stella's shoes on and I smelled a horrific odor. I thought our dog had rolled in cat poop again. I sniffed out the dog and she smelled dirty, but was not the culprit. I caught a wiff of the ungodly smell again. Letting my nose be the detective, I traced the smell to the crack between our couch cushions. Sticking my hand in (clearly I am a mom now -fearing nothing that could possibly get on my hand), I felt wetness. Stumped and now gagging, I pulled the cushions up to reveal a smell so terrible, it gave me another notch on my mom belt. What was the wretched smell? Yup, spilled milk. Apparently, according to my hubby, it was from over a week ago when she spilled half her milk on the couch, don't I remember he had told me. Why he didn't clean it up after he supposedly told I'm not sure; if someone has figured their kind out let me know. I've tried everything, vinegar, baking soda, a whole lotta Fabreeze. Suggestions anyone? I'm crying over spilled milk...and may be in the market for a new couch.

  1. Oh my gosh. Ewwww. I found a bottle of milk in my diaper bag that was about a week old and it was FOUL!!! My husband went into the woods to dump it b/c it was the most disgusting thing ever- I can only imagine what it smelled like on your sofa. Blegh! Try Steam cleaning??

  2. OMG, that is so gross! I also vote for steam cleaning, Lysol Disinfectant spray, or Arm & Hammer deodorizer (I use it to eliminate pet odor)
