“Accidents” on brand new mattresses you just bought from the store? From the accidents caused by your little ones or family pets on this brand new mattress, you can learn how to quickly clean urine stains from the mattress.
Here are some tips to clean up the urine on the mattress without completely losing your mind.
Fresh stains, better cleanup
If you find urine stains on your mattress, your first step should be to dry as much as possible with a paper towel or sponge. If you should own a have a wet/dry vacuum cleaner, use it to better help suck up urine from the mattress. Sprinkle baking soda in the affected area to remove any residual moisture.
Laundry detergent: magic cleaning agent for urine stains
Washing powder is your best friend when removing the urine on the mattress. Once you have soaked all the fresh urine from the mattress, or if the stain is too old to absorb the urine, add a few teaspoons of laundry detergent to a cup of warm water and pour it (or spray your empty spray bottle into the affected area). Alternately, if you can tolerate the smell, you can also use a single portion of warm water mixed with a single portion of vinegar.
Apply your magic potion on urine stains
Once you have mixed your Magic Cleansing Fluid and applied it to the mattress section where the urine is located, repeat the blotting process discussed earlier. Careful blotting is important because it removes any residual urine and prevents mold. After using the cleaning solution, make sure that the urine area of the mattress is as dry as possible.
Use baking soda to remove moisture and urine odor
After you remove all residual moisture from your urine, sprinkle baking soda on the entire mattress. This will help prevent the smell of urine from penetrating into any other part of the mattress. The mattress takes time to dry completely (18-24 hours), so you must make other sleep arrangements at night. After this time, remove all the baking soda using a vacuum. Then the bring the mattress outdoors or in a well ventilated area to allow air to circulate and remove the final scent from the mattress.
If you have followed all the steps above and still smell urine on the mattress, you may need to contact a professional urine stain removal service for assistance. Also, if your mattress has been in use for more than eight years, you should consider to replace it.
