Oh btw I have had no problem using febreeze to neutralize the smell of vinegar.

Don't worry about the vinegar smell, let the vinegar soak in for 30-60 minutes then rinse the mattress with a bit of fresh water. You don't have to go nuts with the rinsing, Then leave the mattress outside until it dries. The vinegar smell should be gone in no time, and it's a lot better than formula.

We have used a combination of Lysol spray followed by Fabreeze for all sorts of matress scents (diaper leaks, bottle leaks, etc) with a good few hours of fresh air and it works every time.
