How to get dog pee out of a mattress?

Dogs can be the perfect companions for cuddling up and keeping your bed warm, but sometimes they leave behind a nasty smell, or worse, pee!

Don’t worry; there is a quick solution for cleaning up the stain and the smell, using products you can find at home or your nearest pharmacy. 

If you spot your furry companion’s accident soon enough, use paper towels or a sponge to soak up as much as you can before moving on to cleaning.

Next, use the following products to remove the stain and smell:

  • Baking soda
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • White vinegar
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide

White vinegar will neutralize the smell: mix a half vinegar/half water solution and add your desired amount to the affected area – just enough to cover the stain should be enough.

Again, soak this up with paper towels or a sponge before moving on to the stain removal.

Next, take a handful of baking soda and sprinkle it over the stain. Now you will mix the rest of the ingredients to clean the area.

Mix together a teaspoon of dishwasher detergent and a quarter cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide (in a spray bottle if you have one available).

Baking soda to clean dog pee

Add the mixture to the baking soda and scrub! You can use a scrubbing brush or your fingers.

Depending on the stain’s size, scrub for around 30 seconds to 1 minute, then leave the mixture to do its magic for 15 minutes.

After that, use your paper towels or sponge to absorb any remaining moisture. 

Once your mattress is dry you may find some remaining baking soda – simply brush or vacuum away.

Now, you can enjoy your clean, dog-pee-free bed once more. You know how to get dog pee out of a mattress but we both know you’ll let them back in!
