I did this but in a foot well, i ended up taking the carpet up and washing it properly.
I doubt you'll get rid of the smell any other way.

Use an anti-bacterial spray,as milk contains bacteria.

Definately Malt vinegar diluted in warm water or even better on the nostrils Lemon Juice in warm water diluted will do the trick.

Sell it before it starts to smell too bad, we had the same problem, tried everything including all the above, plus changing the carpets, the smell never went.

baking soda might help, and/or an antibacterial cleaner.

When I did that I ended up taking the carpet out and soaking it in bath in disinfectant. Also scrub under the carpet, spare tyre everywhere the milk could have got and spray it all with that dettol disinfectant spray. It may take a while for the smell to go completely tho.

If you can take the liner out of the boot then rinse it under the tap allow to dry out, apply a 2 table spoons of biological washing powder in a half full bucket of hand warm water stir and then spong on allowing a good 15 min dwell then rinse off, you could towel dry to get the thick of the water out leave to thoroughly dry.

Milk odour is destroyed by enzymes and biological washing powder has them but it needs a dwell time to give it chance to work, after spray some diluted Zoflora (sold in Boots or Wilko)

You can't just add products to a stain or smell you do have to rinse the contaminant away first then apply corrective treatments.

***HI LAUZ***
The bestest way ever to get rid of spilt milk in a car is MILTON STERILIER.
We had a full 4 pinter spill in our footwell a few months ago, and a local minibus driver told me he uses this when kids spill things and be sick in in bus. It really, really works. We scrubbed the carpet with it, then hoovered it after. we also poured some under the carpet, even though it was dry under there, its the bacteria smell thats all. Use Milton and your car will smell like a swimming pool for a few days, but its worth it!:)

Milton Fluid is another way of sanitizing as it's a bleach but IMO it's a very mild one but you can discolour items with it.

A cat the best idea, if you can get used to its excrement, you can withstand anything.

if its on carpet, you'll never get rid of the smell, every summer hot day it will come back to haunt you.

Spill some flour and a few eggs as well and then you'll have the lovely aroma of pancake on your journey...
