We all love to play with our dogs and cat on the mattress, but the problem arises when our cat and dog urinate on the mattress. This nasty smell of cat urine and odour is hard to remove if you don’t know the right way. I know most of my site reader face this issue every week, but none of them talks openly about it. Not only the pet but also our children have some bedwetting issue. So this post on how to remove urine smell from mattress will help a lot of people. Some people don’t take any action to remove the odour from the bed. They let the mattress dry so that wetness will go away. They also spray perfume on the mattress to remove the odour.
Spraying perfume on the mattress is not the best way to clean the mattress. You will be allowing mold to grow on the mattress if you do not adequately clean the market. The aroma of urine will not be able to get proper sleep.
Sometimes our children don’t tell us about the urine on the mattress, so urine gets absorbed into the mattress in such cases. Using a good quality mattress protector makes it hard to get urine through the protector. If your mattress protector is of low quality or no protector on your mattress, then urine can quickly soak through that mattress protector. Most of the cleaning solutions are not properly remove the odour and stains from the bed. Also, these cleaning solutions contain some chemical that are harmful to your children.
How To Get Rid Of Urine From Your Mattress?.
You can use the available products in your home to remove the stains and odours from the mattress.
One method that i like to use one method for stain and odour removal to use baking soda, white vinegar and some towels. First, i spray white vinegar on my mattress, i spray it over the area where the actual urination happened. I then turn off the fan to let the vinegar sit on the mattress for atleast 10 min. If the stain is new, then use to towel or tissue paper to blot it. While removing the urine from the mattress, do not press the mattress. If you pressed the urine, it would get soaked into the mattress, so gently pull the mattress’s surface urine.
Vinegar is a suitable homemade method of stain removal, and it works very well. After that, i sprinkle some baking soda all over the mattress, and i let it sit on the mattress for five hours. I know some of you might not be comfortable with putting baking soda on the bed. But if you want to protect the mattress from the mold, then you have to do this step. The final step is to use a vacuum clear to clean the baking soda from the mattress. This method is effective and removes most of the stains and bad smell from the mattress.
I prefer white vinegar over other cleaning solution because white vinegar is cheap and contains no harmful chemical. We also notice that some people get a great result with apple cider vinegar. However, apple cider vinegar is expensive than the distilled white vinegar. That is why i prefer distilled white vinegar. If you don’t have time to all the above steps that i mentioned, you can use a waterproof mattress cover to protect your mattress. A good quality mattress cover protects the mattress from pet urine. However, i don’t use waterproof mattress cover as my child is not getting comfortable sleep when i put a waterproof cover on the bed. It is also advisable to put your mattress out in the sun so that direct sunlight from the sun will remove the stains from the mattress. I tried this method, and i like it.
