Until your tiny tot is potty-trained, you’ll have to deal with urine stains on your bed linen or sofa covers. Some children also go through a bed-wetting phase. Most of the time, they’ll get over it on their own. However, in some cases, it would be wise to seek help from a paediatrician.
So, here’s a step-by-step procedure to make the cleaning efficient and effortless for you.
Step 1: Dampen Stain
Soak a soft sponge in water and dampen the stained area. However, be careful to not rub or scrub the sponge on the bed linen as it will only spread the urine stain. Remember you are doing this to only weaken the odour and strength of the stain.
Step 2: Sprinkle Baking Soda
Cover the entire stained area on your bed linen with baking soda. It will absorb the excess moisture and foul odour.
Step 3: Dry in Sunlight
Dry your bed linen in sunlight. If possible, hang it for drying in an open space or a well-ventilated room. Do not expose your bed linen to direct sunlight as it can damage its fabric.
Step 1: Blot Stain
Throw some paper towels or a dry cloth towel on the stained area to absorb the moisture.
Step 2: Treat with Vinegar
Dip a clean cloth in vinegar and gently press it on the stained area of the bed linen. The vinegar will react with the urine and weaken its strength and odour.
Step 3: Allow it to Dry
Let your bed linen dry thoroughly. If you are short on time, use a hair dryer.
Step 4: Wash It
Finally, you could give your bed linen a thorough wash in the washing machine. If you are looking for a good detergent, we recommend using Surf Excel Matic Liquid. This should make your bed linen clean and stain-free.
There you go! Your bed linen is now free of those pesky stains.
