With most urine stains, not only do you have the unsightly mark to contend with but often the stain lingers through an off-putting smell.
To clean a urine carpet stain just follow these steps:
Flush the area with cold water and then blot until virtually dry. Sponge dry with a strong carpet shampoo and deodorise. Rinse well with lots of cold water to which a few drops of disinfectant have been added. Blot to dry. If any odour persists, try a deodorising product such as Neutrodol Carpet Deodoriser.
A common place to find a urine stain is in a child's bedroom. To prevent mattresses becoming stained there are rubber sheets available for those children prone to bed-wetting.
Hold the mattress on its side while the treatment is being carried out. Sponge with a cold solution of washing up liquid or upholstery shampoo. Wipe with cold water to rinse and add a few drops of disinfectant to the solution.
A good recipe for urine stains on non-washable fabrics:
1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 pint of warm water. Dab this solution on wuith a clean lint free cloth. Dried or large stains should be professionally treated.
For washable fabrics:
Rinse with warm or cold water and then soak in a biological washing solution overnight. Wash by hand of if possible in a washing machine the nest day as normal.
