the materials you’ll need:
- Paper towels
- Oxygen bleach
- White vinegar
- Baking soda (optional)
- Enzyme detergent
First, rinse the soiled area with cool water and then blot dry with paper towels. Avoid scrubbing vigorously, as this can push the urine further into the fabric. The objective here is to remove as much of it before proceeding to the stain-removal stages.
Next, fill a sink or basin with water and add a half-cup of oxygen bleach – such as Oxiclean. Do not use traditional chlorine bleach as it has harsh chemicals that could damage clothing fibers. Once you’ve mixed in the oxygen powder thoroughly, soak affected items in solution for 1-4 hours.
To get the best outcome, use a two-step process to clean urine stains and odor. The first part is a vinegar wash.
- Create a solution using one cup of white vinegar and one cup of water. Douse the clothing item or area that has the stain with this mixture and let it sit for several minutes.
- Cover the soiled area with baking soda if desired. Baking soda, when mixed with vinegar, creates a powerful combination that will both eliminate odors and stains.
- Wash accused items in a washing machine set to cold or lukewarm water–detergent free. Avoid hot or warm water as it may worsen the odor and stain.
- Dry the soiled items in the air. This can take a full day if you’re drying them inside. Do not use a clothes dryer, as this will make the odor permanent.
