Don't panic if you notice pet urine staining on your mattress! There are many things you can do to remove the stain. Depending on how old it is and how much of the mattress has been stained, some methods will be more effective than others. Read this article for tips on removing urine stains from your mattress!
By heating the water, stains that are deep within the mattress fibers will be broken up and released. Don’t use too much pressure or you may damage the cover of your mattress! If this doesn't work, try repeating it several times until all remnants of pet urine are gone.
Vacuum off any loose particles around the stain using an upholstery attachment before applying hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria left behind by accident. Make sure not to apply too much pressure when vacuuming so as not to push residue deeper into layers of fabric underneath.
Spoon some of the hydrogen peroxide onto the cloth or paper towel.
Add more to make sure all of it is covered by liquid, but don't let any of it touch your skin! Oxygenated water will break down and remove stains left on a mattress. Allow this to sit for roughly 30 minutes before removing with another clean piece of cloth or paper towel.
Pour in some baking soda and rub it with your hands. Please note not to rub with excessive pressure that might break your mattress style and also note that you must rub it in a circular motion.
Let it sit for about an hour, then vacuum up the residue. This will help to suck out embedded moisture and neutralize any remaining odors in your mattress caused by pet urine stains. Repeat these steps several times if necessary until all remnants of stain are gone!
Wash your sheets as soon as possible after removing any urine stains to prevent smell and bacteria from setting in. This is very important because the longer you wait, the harder it will be for these methods to work effectively! If necessary, use a dishwasher on an extra-hot cycle if washing by hand doesn't get rid of all pet pee odors.
Do not use chlorine bleach or products with ammonia when cleaning up messes left behind by pets because harmful vapors may build up over time and cause respiratory problems like asthma attacks. Also note that vinegar can leave yellow marks on light colored fabrics, so make sure to spot the test first before adding this ingredient to your cleaning routine!
By applying these tips and tricks to your mattress, it will be like new again in no time!
