Help ... Dog peed in my shoes!!!
This is my first visit to the cleaning forum.
I have a pair of leather shoes that I discovered today have been peed in/on by one of my dogs. It could have been a cat, but I'm pretty certain it was a dog. I THINK it happened last night.
One in particular was literally full of urine. I had to pour it out. My question is, what in the world should I do???
If they were tennis shoes, I know I could throw them in the washer, but they are nice leather pumps. They are black, Mary Jane style, and have a suede flower on the strap.
I could wipe them down and set them out in the air for a while, but I know the urine has soaked into the soft insole part, and I imagine they will smell whenever they get warm.
Can I put them through a gentle cycle in the washer?? Keeping in mind that one at least has already been soaked in urine?
