Just curious, when somebody throws up in your car, do you clean it up yourself and do you pay the $200 dollars to get it professionally cleaned?

Which reminds me, LSU is about to get back into school, time to put the liner all throughout your car.

I heard they dropped the vomit charge down to $150.

I haven't had to deal with vomit for 6 months. I haven't driven since jazz fest.

Beats me. I used to clean up that crap on my own.

My trick was to head straight to the carwash, vacuum the stuff out, spray with chemicals, vacuum again.

Depending on the location of the vomit, I would sometimes use the pressure washer at the car wash and then vacuum the water out.

The first time I dealt with vomit involved about a million paper towels in a walmart parking lot. Took me about two hours and I still had to clean the car the next day.

My vacuum trick has it down to 15 minutes.

Yeah, you really need to get it professionally cleaned. I heard a story of a guy dropping a couple of people off and one of them had actually threw up in his car. and the driver wasn't even worried about it. The passenger should have asked the driver for money in that case. I've had a few close calls, but I know a lot of Uber drivers who have had it in their car. Speaking of which, bid night is coming up.

I met an Uber driver once who threw up in his own car. He cleaned it up with a few napkins.

i had one this past saturday. cost them 150 dollars
Where can you get it professionally cleaned for less than 150? I'd send the clean up bill to Uber. They have taken on the responsibility of securing the proper amount, they would have to be liable for the difference. At least I would assume so, perhaps an attorney could give us some insight.
