Yesterday my daughter dropped an entire gallon of milk on my ceramic tile floor. The smell is so bad. I have used baking sod and vinegar and the smell is still there. What are some other things to try???

Bleach water and scrub the heck out of the grout. If that didn't work I would probably scrub the grout with Soft Scrub.

Are you sure that you got it all? I mean, have you checked the baseboards, up under the ledges, any cabinet doors that it might have splashed up under?

I'd spritz it really well with vinegar and let it sit a while. It probably soaked into the grout, so you'll want to let the vinegar soak in.

There's been some good stuff on pintrest for cleaning/odor stuff.

I think the one is someone mentioned vinegar and baking soda. I think it's apple cider vinegar.

An enzymatic cleaner like BacOut or Nature's Miracle.

The smell should go away on its own in a few days if you can wait it out.

I think I'd try a mixture of ammonia and water with a scrub brush.
