How to Get Urine Out of a Mattress
Step 1: Blotting the Urine Stain
When you need to get urine out of a mattress, the first step is to blot the stain. Start by using a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb as much of the urine as possible. Do not rub the stain as this can cause it to spread and set further.
Step 2: Making the Cleaning Solution
To make the cleaning solution, mix one teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent with one cup of lukewarm water. You can also use a store-bought upholstery cleaner if you prefer.
Step 3: Applying the Cleaning Solution
Next, use a clean cloth or sponge to apply the cleaning solution to the urine stain on the mattress. Make sure to use gentle strokes and avoid scrubbing the stain. Keep applying the cleaning solution until the stain begins to lift away.
Step 4: Blotting the Stain Again
Once the stain has been lifted, use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot the area to remove the remaining cleaning solution. Be sure to use gentle pressure and avoid rubbing the fabric as this can cause damage.
Step 5: Drying the Mattress
Finally, use a hairdryer to dry the area. Make sure to keep the hairdryer at least 12 inches away from the mattress to avoid overheating the fabric. Once the area is dry, the urine stain should be gone.
