    I also have a Kirby but it's newer. Still heavy but it sure works.

    Ok, this is off topic but since somebody brought up the dog issue I will chime in. My sis told me about Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover. It is God's gift to pet owners. Takes out the smell the stain everything. Just spray it on, wait about 10 min.

    I have a Rainbow vac & you won't believe the dead skin that comes out of a mattress even when you use a cover on it!

    Rubbing alcohol removes ink from clothes/carpets .. maybe it would remove a urine stain from a mattress , worth a try or maybe distilled vinegar would be worth trying as well ????

    In the summer I take one mattress outside a week and scrub both sides with dish soap and a scrubber, hose it down on both sides till all the soap is out on both sides. I keep flipping it until I do not see anymore suds. I leave it out in the sun and flip

    Peroxide removes all body fluids and normally the stains as well, it will not bleach any fabric, you can use it on blood, urine, and anything else left behind it will clean, disinfect and deodorize without the nasty fumes of bleach.

    Neat idea. Probably even better as I'm coming off a severe flare up of lupus. Have spent too much time on bed rest. Would this idea work as well on furniture?

    My mother used to scrub both mattresses and bed pillows with a sponge and the suds from a bowl of Tide and hot water. But just the suds, so that they don't get really wet. Drying in the sunshine probably further disinfected, whitened and deodorized them.
