Oh dear! DD1 wasn't settling for a nap, so I took her into our bed and cuddled her....and woke up some time later. She's weed on our king size, lovely, memory foam topped mattress. What can I do?

Liberally sprinkle bicarbonate of soda, leave for a good few hours (over night is best) then hoover it off.

Fab - thank you. We have a spare bed so can leave overnight. Will go and do it now!!

An alternative is to get a sponge and a solution of washing up liquid and water, and just wipe the offending area, Usually works well.

Thanks Boffin - we left the bicarb overnight, but I fear there is still a faint whiff - paranoia maybe?!

I would wipe it as well then.

DS did this to ours a while back. We did bicarb then used a steam cleaner, then repeated the proces a couple of times. Tbh it took a few days before we were happy the smell was out. The steam cleaner made a really big difference.

Can you use steam on memory foam?

Ah, didn't pick up on that sorry. I don't have memory foam but google seems to think it's ok.

Kim and Aggie used to recommend rubbing shaving foam in?

Ariel biological washing powder made into a paste, then scrubbed in works well and smells nice.
Good luck
