    Take everything our of the boot including spare wheel etc.
    Try and locate any liquid.
    You might have to give boot liner a wash and then dry it properly.

    Buy a boot size load of silica gel packs & leave them in the car for a week, moisture will go then lmao.

    Thats where you went wrong, they are cack!

    But seriously either use it again to shampoo the boot or if it's only the removable carpet then just use the shampoo with a stiff brush to scrub, rinse off and hang to dry should sort it out to save hiring the machine again

    Or use a large 5 or 10kg bag of rice and spread it all over the boot. It'll absorb the moisture.
    Once finished with, leave the rice out during the winter for the birds to feed on.
