When our own child recently wet the bed (and by wet, we mean soaked), we thought a new mattress was in order. (And, no, we didn’t have one of those protectors on – it was on our to-do list!)
Thankfully, we polled our brilliant mom group for help, and, per usual, they delivered. And it worked like a charm. Here’s how you get urine out of a mattress, in case you find yourself in this lovely predicament:
What You Need
White Distilled Vinegar
Paper Towels or Rags
- Put vinegar in spray bottle and saturate the mattress where the urine is with vinegar. Open windows and turn a fan on high. Let it sit for 15-30 minutes.
- Use paper towels or rags to blot the area, soaking up some of the liquid. Don’t rub too hard though!
- Sprinkle baking soda all over the area, fairly liberally. Let it sit for 2-4 hours.
- Break out the handheld vac and clean up all the baking soda.
Now go order yourself a waterproof mattress protector.
