To Clean Urine Off Of A Mattress:
- Use a dry towel to blot the remaining moisture. Do not rub, just pat the area until you have removed the excess liquid.
- Sprinkle baking powder on the area to soak up the rest of the moisture.
- One website recommends using Percil Bio washing detergent or you can mix one part vinegar to one part warm water to make a cleaning solution. Put the solution in a spray bottle, and spray on the affected area of your mattress. Let the detergent or vinegar solution sit for 5 minutes.
- Gently blot the area using a clean towel. Then using a dry towel remove any excess moisture. Do not rub. Rubbing the area will only cause the smell and urine to go further into the comfort materials of your mattress.
- Sprinkle again with baking soda.
- Allow the mattress to dry thoroughly, overnight, if possible.
- After the area is completely dry, vacuum the baking soda.
