Eeeek! My three year old has peed all over her toddler bed, and its gone right through and soaked the mattress. How do I clean it? It smells.

They are an absolute bugger to clean.
Fist spray disinfectant all over the wet spot, use baby shampoo and warm water to lightly clean it and pat dry with a towel. sprinkle cat litter ( or bicarbonate of soda) on the stain to draw out the moister and stop the smell, wipe it off and take a hair dryer to it.

Afterwards put bin bags under the sheet until you can get a mattress protector in case it happens again.
