Response to raccoon (Original post)

44. Pull carpet/mat out of trunk and wash and dry thoroughly in the sun.

If the trunk has drain plugs, you can remove them and use a little soap and water. As much fresh air as possible. The odor will go away eventually. A woman friend once left 5 lbs of fresh shrimp in my trunk over the weekend in Fl summer, I know what you're dealing with!

Edit: Misread truck in OP as trunk. Removing carpet and using soap and water probably not possible. Instead, reccomend spray n vac foamy carpet cleaner, and an odor absorber. As much fresh air as possible, too. It will go away in a few weeks. Maybe trade vehicles with BIL during that time? Lol!
