for one scary moment i read the title as 'dd has done a wee in her patant leather knickers was wondring what was going on

bundle Thu 11-Nov-04 19:22:35

misdee, i mis-read it in exactly the same way

zephyrcat Thu 11-Nov-04 19:22:46

lol i read knickers too! had to go back and check! i think if you wipe them with a lightly damp cloth and let them dry they should be ok

I thought it said knickers too - I thought this was going to be one of those threads that Tech needs to delete pronto.

You could rinse them out and dry (away from heat). Or you could let them dry and febreze them.

misdee Thu 11-Nov-04 19:23:36

srpay some febreeze in them after as well. or some sprinkle bi-carb inside once they are dry.

I read it as knickers, too - what a rude lot we all are.

Googled this, hope it helps ...

Urine. Human and dog urine usually do not harm the leather and a mild detergent / soap solution can usually clean the offensive problem. You do not want to soak the leather. Remove the cushion if you can and remove the stuffing. Absorb all the urine you can then wash the area. Method: In a quart of room temp water “squirt” in some liquid detergent or soap and then agitate the water to produce suds. Using a new sponge, soak the sponge and wring it out as much as you can. Then using only the suds, wash the entire cushion seam to seam. Wipe, do not scrub. You can scrub the bottom side of the leather and then use a towel to help dry the area. Using another new sponge and clean water wipe the entire surface of the leather while it is still damp You want to remove as much of the soap as possible. Wash the stuffing as seems appropriate and then re-stuff the leather, leaving a dry towel between the cushion material and the leather until all are dry.

So glad I'm not the only one to mis-read it. I thought someone had been going through a Xena phase.

WigWamBam Thu 11-Nov-04 19:25:45

I know it's about sofas, but if you ignore the cushion bit it's all the same stuff ...

Chandra Thu 11-Nov-04 19:45:53

All I could think was why on earth is your child wearing patent leather knickers... eye test pronto

tortoiseshell Thu 11-Nov-04 19:58:14

I thought knickers as well - was wondering WHY anyone would be tempted to buy patent leather knickers, and why haven't I seen them in M&S. Obviously it's kickers.

MunnzieB Thu 11-Nov-04 20:01:29
