Do have a dh due home soon, however, and am feeling in need of escape. So shall chuck the dc in his general direction and use the urgent need for cat litter as an excuse to get out of the house and get an hour or so on my own.
Most children's wee doesn't smell too bad, but unfortunately this dc hasn't read the manual and often produces phenomenally whiffy wees. Put some of that in a pair of shoes that will be worn almost every day for several hours over the next 6 weeks. Substantial boak-potential, I think.
Actually, they're not soaked, and it would seem that today was not a whiffy-wee day. I've blotted up the worst and chucked in a handful of those moisture-absorbing sachets you get in new bags (I'm such a hoarder!). Tomorrow dd will wear trainers and the shoes can sit out in the sunshine.
I would try bicarb as I used this once on the carpet by the toilet in a rented flat with great success. Rub on, vacuum off if necessary. Dc1 regularly weed in his shoes with no long term damage, I just emptied and wet wiped them quick.
