Need to know how to remove urine stains from a mattress? You are not alone. Urine stains are one of the most common stains that can be found on mattresses. Whether the urine stain on your mattress is from a pet or a little kid, we have got the steps to help you out.
To remove urine stains from a mattress, you will need:
- Laundry detergent
- Baking soda
- A vacuum
- To remove urine stains from a mattress, you need to first blot up as much of the urine as you can when it first happens. Doing so will help to minimize the amount of effort you are going to have to exert to remove the urine stain from your mattress.
- After blotting up the urine, you will need a detergent solution to help remove the urine stain from the mattress. Mix a laundry detergent and warm water in a container with a lid. Once you have combined the detergent and water, shake the container vigorously. Remove the lid from the container and skim the top layer of soap off of the solution. Rub the soapy solution onto the urine stain on the mattress. Using a sponge, scrub the soap on the urine stain. Continue to do this until the stain fades. Once it has faded, allow the mattress to dry.
- If the detergent fails to remove the urine stain from your mattress, try using vinegar and baking soda. Vinegar can be used around the home to clean and works fairly well on urine stains. Using a cloth, rub vinegar into the urine stain. Completely saturate the affected area with the vinegar. Once you have covered the entire stain, sprinkle baking soda on the urine stain. Allow the vinegar and baking soda to completely dry on the mattress and vacuum it up. It is best to allow it to sit overnight to combat the odor of the urine.
- There are also many products that can be purchased at your local pet supply store that are designed specifically for urine removal on fabrics. Most of these products are inexpensive and work fairly well.
After the urine stain is removed from the mattress, you may want to consider purchasing a mattress cover for your bed. A mattress cover is easier to clean and can be quickly removed for cleaning.
