How to Remove Pee Stains (and Smell!) From a Mattress
If you have a young child or a pet in the house, chances are you at some point will have to deal with pee stains on a mattress even if you use a mattress protector. Accidents happen. So be grateful that I have the magic formula for removing those pee stains!
To remove pee stains from your mattress you will need hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, dish soap, lavender essential oil (if you like) and a funnel and a spray bottle.
You'll mix the hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, liquid hand dish washing soap, and lavender essential oil all together in the spray bottle. Spin it all together in the bottle a little bit but don't shake it.
Take that spray bottle and spray it all over those pee stained mattresses!
I had two mattresses that were stained (twins) and here are the before.
The other mattress before stain removal.
After!! There was still a very slight yellow coloring, but so much better and the smell was gone!
To finish up, let the mattress dry (about one hour) and then vacuum them to get up the gritty baking soda off.
