Help- I spilled toilet sanitizer in the camper! I can't breathe in there

I spilled about two tablespoons of liquid toilet sanitizer (contains formaldehyde) on the carpet in the wardrobe closet. I can't even go in the camper without my eyes watering, throat and lungs burning. It's parked in the driveway with the Fantastic Fan going 24/7. I've tried baking soda and cornstarch, and also diluting it with water. I went through several towels adding water and blotting it. Finally, I ripped the carpet out. The pad was glued down and used a crowbar to try to get it out, but there is still some pad. The camper is STILL not safe to be in for more than a few minutes at a time. Does anyone have any home remedies to neutralize this poison? I sure appreciate your advice-- thank you so much!

Find a professional that deals with toxic cleanup. Formaldehyde shouldn’t be something the layman (you and me) handles.
