It’s not a pretty subject, but if you’re a parent, you’ve been there. If you’re expecting, get ready. Every parent has had a mattress get peed on, and has had to clean it. It’s just a fact of life. But figuring out how to clean it (REALLY clean it) can be a bit of a head scratcher. After all, you can’t just throw an entire mattress into the washing machine. But you want to make sure it is stain free and sanitized. Well, this post by Kristin at Yellow Bliss Road is here to save the day! Here’s what you do to get urine stains out of a mattress:
Saturate that mattress (or the stains at least) with vinegar. You can use a spray bottle or just gently drizzle it right on. Let the vinegar sit for 5-10 minutes.
Using paper towels, soak up the vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda all over the mattress, and let sit for a few hours. Then vacuum! No more stain!
