Cleaning Bedwetting Stains
Whether you have a bedwetting child, teen or a potty-training toddler at home, cleaning stained sheets and mattress can be challenging. It’s a perfectly natural part of growing up, and occasionally happens in later life as well. Removing urine stains from a mattress is not tough if you act fast, and treat the situation sensitively and sensibly. Here are some helpful tips that can help make cleaning tough urine stains a bit simpler.
Tip 1: Start by blotting any excess urine on the bed sheets using a clean dry towel, cloth, or paper towels. Lightly blot the sheets to get as much of the liquid off as you can.
Tip 2: To fight stubborn tough urine stains after a bedwetting event, remove all the wet bedding and wash with warm water to prevent the fibers from shrinking. Protect prints and colors by flipping pillowcases inside out. If your bedding has delicate trims, read the care label before washing to prevent mishaps.
Tip 3: Urine Stain removers are the best option to get rid of rigid stains. Spray your chosen solution onto the stain and leave to sit for 3-5 minutes. If using a commercial stain remover, always carefully follow the instructions on the product packaging, be sure to wear protective gloves, and open the windows for ventilation.
Tip 4: If a bedwetting accident has stained your mattress, combine Odorzyme concentrate stain and odor remover and water to make a liquid. The liquid can be used to cover the entire urine stain. Let the liquid dry. Once it has dried, wash it off. This stain remover not only neutralizes odors on contact and removes stains but it penetrates and breaks down the source of the odors for lasting results. To check stubborn stains, use a black light to see if there is still urine. If there is reapply.
Tip 5: To avoid odor blot the urine; don’t rub the urine into the mattress.
Tip 6: To avoid constantly changing beddings and reducing laundry load purchase waterproof mattress pad or plastic mattress covers like Waterproof bedding overlays to absorb urine leaks, sweat stains and liquid spills. These types of bedding can save time and money by reducing cleaning costs.
Tip 7: Keep an effective stain remover such as odorzyme stain and odor remover or Blue marble stain and odor remover or DPs Urine Stain remover to locate the urine on a mattress, cover the stain with a stain remover, and let the remover dry on its own. Once the stain remover has dried, check for the complete removal of the urine stain or if needed reapply. They not only remove unwanted stains but also make your mattress free from bad odor.
To reduce laundry cost and better manage bedwetting, purchase waterproof mattress pad to absorb any unwanted liquid spill. Waterproof bedding can be washed over 300 times, while still absorbing up to 6 cups of liquids. Stain removers are another must have for parents with bedwetting children or potty-training toddlers to remove stains and eliminate odor.
