Owning a dog has many benefits but also many challenges, including things like urine stains when accidents happen. Urine leaves behind unpleasant colors and lingering odors that can make your mattress unsightly and unappealing.
Getting stains out of your mattress doesn’t have to be complicated. You can even do it without having to purchase harsh commercial cleaning products.
It is best to clean dog urine out of your mattress immediately after the accident happens, to ensure that the stain doesn’t seep into the material of your bed. So, once you discover the accident, set to work using these quick steps to clean the stain and dog pee smell out of your mattress.
1.Remove the sheets and bedding.
Immediately after discovering the accident, remove all of your bedding. You need to strip your mattress of any of the sheets or blankets on the bed at the time of the accident. Urine stains set quickly, so you need to instantly get these washable items into the washing machine with medium-strength laundry detergent.
Once you wash your bedding once, the urine smell could still linger or the stain might still be somewhat visible. If that is the case for you, add a cup of white vinegar into the mix and rewash them.
2.Go back to the mattress and blot, blot, blot.
Use paper towels so you don’t soak up the urine with any of your other clean, usable towels. Blot the soiled area. You might have to use quite a few, depending on how much excess liquid is on the mattress. Do not scrub the spot. Scrubbing only pushes the fluid further into the fabric. The deeper it goes, the harder it will be to remove the stain and odor thoroughly.
