Wet the stain with water and pile on an odor absorber overnight- baking soda or coffee grounds work well. The next day, vaccum up the baking soda then clean it again with borax and water.

Then get a commercial odor absorber for cars and leave it under the seat.

Hmm. The milk probably soaked into the foam of the actual seat, not just on the surface. That might have been the worst place for that to spill. Short of waiting until it’s completely decomposed, or replacing the seat, i’m not sure?

Saturating the area with Febreze might help.

That happened to my mom, except it was the trunk and chocolate milk.  I’m not gonna lie… they had to replace the carpet in the trunk.
