Help getting dog pee out of mattress?

by Rachel

My dog peed on my bed. How do I get the smell/ stain out of the mattress? The stain bothers me less than the smell. Thanks!

    Try cleaning it with a solution of vinegar and water (50/50), and then make a solution of white thyme essential oil and water (10/90 oil to water) and spray. Both the vinegar and the white thyme will remove both stain and smell, and discourage your fur baby from doing it again. Good luck!

    Yes vinegar is perfect for eliminating smells. However, it leaves it's own smell for 2-3 days but is vanished after that. I'd also advise you to look for on-site upholstery cleaners with the water evaporation machines like Rainbow or those from Prochem. There are quite advanced washing systems out there, and your mattress will be dry immediately. I hire at least once a year

    I had a big problem with cats peeing on plush animals ... and i found that this recipe ... ... takes all the smell out fast and easy. It is only hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dish detergent, but the chemical composition works to neutralize the odor of urine.

    Try Vinegar mixed with a little bit of water. It will help take the smell out of it for sure.

    I ran a dog rescue, living in pee from dogs is tooooo familiar. A new product on the market "Pee Be Gone" is the only thing I have found that works. It works with enzymes to just neutralize the urine. It comes in 3 smells to my knowledge, which do not linger, but the lavender vanilla is my favorite so far. I got it from amazon after a fellow rescuer recommended it to me. Good luck. phyllis

    There is a product that has enzymes plus a cleaning element for urine, feces, blood & dozens of other impossible stains and odors. It is called Kids & Pets. You can find it at pet stores or Walmart. I've tried all the other enzyme cleaners and this one is the best. There will not be any smell left at all after you use it. For yhe stain it will work also. The other enzyme cleaners react by turning mattresses brown because of the material in mattress, but not Kids & Pets. It will not reverse prior stains unfortunately.

    Nature's Miracle is my favorite. But you should try to remove as much as possible before dealing with any smell. I find rewetting the area with vinegar/water & extracting with a shop vac or little green machine works best. Then blot with an old towel & treat with Natures Miracle then extract again & set a fan up on the area
  • I really do not think you will succeed in removal of this odor. While I swear by Natures Miracle, the mattress is more like a big sponge and if enough urine got into the mattress I doubt you will be able to soak it enough without causing any damage to the padding. Any water type method will only push the urine back into the mattress further and risking mold development in the process. Use a black light on the mattress to pin point exactly where it is. In a dark room it will glow green.

    I use my rug scrubber twice a year to clean my mattress's with after you get the moisture soaked up run a rug scrubber over your mattress make sure you do it early in the morning so it has time to dry, then the next day i do the other side. It works great.

    Also, sprinkle with Baking Soda. When it's still wet with pee. It will soak up the pee. Then use the Vinegar/Water mix..I used about 60/40...It will smell like Vinegar for few days....

    Thank you...any suggestions from having them pee in the house? We rescued a Miniature Grey hound and he is just a love, but likes to pee in the house. Took him to get fixed thinking that would help...NOPE!!! And I have 3 other dogs that like to follow suite...Yikes, I am constantly shampooing my carpets...

    I had a sick cat and she peed on a bed mattress. I sprinkled it with a lot of baking soda then heavily sprayed it with hydrogen peroxide. Let it sit until the peroxide is dry and baking soda is powdery, then vacuum it up. I swear by this. the spot is white again and no odor.
