ds2 is still not dry at night and dispite wearing a pull up at night, his mattress really stinks. In hindsight I should have used a plastic sheet on the bed but I thought the pull ups would be enough.

Any ideas on getting the wee smell out? Thanks.

I spray with a carpet/upholstery cleaner like 1001 then leave to dry.

Although wouldn't use if he has asthma as fumes might be a problem.

Does it need scrubbing? No asthma and I have 1001 so I'll give it a try, thanks.

Zoflara disenfectant is also good.

Weak solution of Zoflora - great for wee and vomit smells.

Do you have a steam cleaner or could you borrow one? We cleaned my friends DS's mattress with mine and alought the stain stayed there its taken the smell out.

Also good old fashioned bar of soap (that you get washed with), damp flannel and scrub for the stains. Then clean water and flannel to remove residue (leaves a nice smell too) smile

when dc wet the bed at mil's I sprinkled bio powder all over and hoovered it off after it had dried.
no smell after.
that was fresh pee, though.

Unfortunately this is dry now. Will pick up some Zoflora ad try that too and if all else fails will have to ask around to borrow a steam cleaner as I don't own one.

I've used Febreeze which will mask the smell but I'd be interested in any ways to actually clean a matress.
