Having young kids at the home, you might have experience cleaning bedsheet to remove urine stains. Usually, people rely on Odor removing sprays like Febreze, but because they just only remove the smell, the effect won’t last long. Even worse thing is that they don’t act on the stain.
However, there are some ways for removing urine stains and odours; each method is different. All these methods would also work on pets urine stains and odours.
If the urine is soaked-in or dried, there’s nothing much you can do before getting busy with using a commercial product. But if the surface is still wet, start by using towels to blot up the urine. Rinse the area with plain water before trying cleaners as discussed below..
Use borax or baking soda.
Borax is a toxic cleaning agent, which is an anti-bacterial. So, you have to careful with it, it’s highly dangerous for kids and pets. Keep away from their reach. You can get borax from local laundry aisle.

- Sprinkle some borax or baking soda.
- Rub the powder on the surface thoroughly and let it sit for 30 minutes.
- When it’s dry, use a brush and remove the powder. Now, vacuum it thoroughly.
Use Vinegar or Hydrogen Peroxide.
