Make sure that you have completely removed the chunks and remnants eft behind and that you have identified and isolated the area that needs cleaning. 2) If you were able to get to the vomit spill while it was still fresh then once you have removed the vomit substance you can apply some OdorKlenz Absorbent granules directly on the affected area.

Next apply the OdorKlenz source directly to the affected area and allow for at least 15-20 minutes of contact time. At this point, you may pour the OdorKlenz source directly onto the affected area or you may dilute the product into a pump spray or spray bottle and spray it on.

“We tried the product at all 9 of our elementary schools in Manhattan. Faculty members found it was far superior to our current product. They were able to contain the vomit spill, completely neutralize the odor, and easily clean up the remaining dry material." John M.-⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “ worked great! It cleaned up so easy and there was no smell. I just sprinkled it on and cleaned it up with a dust pan and broom and vacuumed up the little bit that was left. I would definitely use it again, it is a whole lot easier than what we have been doing to clean up vomit.” Susan A.-⭐⭐⭐⭐
