Yesterday was my sons 25th birthday.
Today he needs to clean up his girlfriends car.

Clean the vomit, then use baking soda

After shampooing, you might try an enzyme product like Natures Miriacle. If that doesn’t work, open up a few bags of charcoal in the back seat for a week or so.

I’d try Febreeze, and leaving the windows open.

Had plenty of experience in this area with drunks under arrest.

Wash as much out with soap and water. Use gloves.

Let it dry. Buy Natures Miracles and let it soak thoroughly, even dripping wet, You want the enzymes to go the same path as the vomit, Let it dry and in a couple of day, your vehicle should be voit odor-free.

Clean up the debris with a rag, then use some Resolve Stain Fighter if there’s any discoloration. Then spray it with one of the many lovely scents of Febreze, may need to spray it more than once, after the first application dries. Febreze is pretty good, I’ve cleaned up poopy, farty, urine scents with it and it’s great!

I got pets and sick relatives. Ill, not twisted.

You don’t. You leave it and hope she learns from the experience.
