The thing is, pee happens! It doesn’t matter whether it’s from a toddler or a pet, pee needs to be cleaned as soon as possible before it starts to stink. Carpets, tiles, and grout are easy to clean, but I can’t say the same for fabric sofas. Yes, my two-year-old just made mom happy and peed on the sofa! As soon as I turned around to grab a diaper, Mathew just finished peeing on the couch!
As I was in a hurry, I threw some paper towels over the pee stain to absorb the liquid. The pee stain was still there the next day! Although it wasn’t that bad, I had to do something to remove the odor and disinfect the couch since I don’t plan on changing it anytime soon.
Using my older sister’s cleaning expertise, I was able to remove urine odor and stain from my fabric couch in no time.
🧴 Buckle up with the following ingredients:
▪ White vinegar
▪ 1 cup of baking soda
▪ 15-20 drops of lavender essential oil
▪ Cotton cloth/rag or paper towels
🧽 Let the pee-removal mission begin:
◾ Use the cotton cloth to absorb as much urine as possible. As I mentioned previously, I cover the pee stain with paper towels. It seemed like a quick and helpful start.
◾ Next, mix 4 parts of water with 1 part of white vinegar in a bowl and give your sofa a thorough cleaning. You don’t have to worry! There will be no vinegar smell on your couch! Wipe and rub the vinegar solution over the stain with a rag until you feel you have covered the spot well.
◾ The next step is to remove moisture and odor. Mix baking soda with lavender essential oil and stir well with a fork to distribute the oil evenly. Spread the baking soda mix over the stained area of your couch.
◾ Waiting game! Let the baking soda mix sit overnight so it can absorb the odors. Next morning, vacuum the baking soda well and you’ll be amazed! There is no more stain!
