Default stale milk on car carpet removal

Does anyon know anything that will remove or disguise the smell of stale milk from my car carpet. I've tried ordinary shampoo and lots of rinsing but the smell is still there.

A steam cleaner would do the job if you know anyone who you could borrow one from.
The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

Simply apply fresh milk, its the same principle as the old red and white wine removal trick.

Thanks for your fast replies. It looks like steam cleaning followed by baking soda overnight. (Should I sue Asda for the leaky milk bottle and carrier bag? - only joking!).
