Urine stain / smell

mistietxJune 17, 2003

I posted this already on the cleaning forum, but though maybe some parents could help if their child had bed wetting problems. Sorry for the cross-post!

Help! I have my 4 kids staying with us from out of town for the month and the 5 y/o peed on my 2 month old sofa!! Is there any tried and true methods to getting rid of the stain/ smell?? We bought a warranty for the sofa for things such as this, but after reading the fine print today, it does not cover pet / human body fluids. I feel like crying......

Clean immediately with a baby wipe. That alone seemed to deoderize for me. But if the smell is still there, mix baking soda and hot water in a spray bottle. Spray on, and blot off with a clean, white cloth.

Good luck!!!

Use a product from the pet store called Nature's Miracal.....works like magic to remove urine stains....and odor.

Fabreeze did the business for me when the cat got shut in the bedroom one day and had the choice - either pee on the bed or explode. He chose to moisten my blankets.

If fabreeze can neutralise tomcat's pee, surely it can do the same for your predicament.

Do the cushions come off? I have been know to disassemble to cushions and take them outside to hose them off. I even wash the covers in a very gentle wash cycle and hang dry. And use Nature's Miracle.

Put 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water in a spray bottle. Spray the cushion and set it outside, not in direct sunlight, or you'll bleach the fabric!

I cloth diaper, and this is how I get the smell out of my diaper pail!!

It cuts the urine smell! This works in the bathroom as well if you have a little boy who 'misses', or a hubby who does!!!! HAHA!

Hi I have had similar issues and i swear by this site as it covered most of my needs. I tried fabreeze without any luck although it made the area smell nice for a short time :0
I find detergents don't do it for me so we must have strong urine LOL

Here is a link that might be useful: urine stains
