From food spills to pet accidents, our mattresses go through a lot of wear and tear over the years. Urine stains are especially hard to remove due to the uric acid crystals found in human and pet urine. What you need to get rid of the stain is an enzyme based cleaning product.
We recommend Urine Erase for old, set in stains. This household stain remover has been around for more than 30 years, so it has credibility. Plus, it works on most surfaces, from mattresses to tile to hardwood floors.
Before you start the stain removal process, you need to access the size and depth of the stain. You need to use a volume of cleaning solution that is equal to the amount of urine or liquid that caused the stain. Mattresses and furniture will require more solution, while floors and flat surfaces will need less.
So how does Urine Erase work? There are two steps:
- Mix the dry enzyme powder with water, and then pour this solution onto the stain. Let sit for 8 hours.
- Pour the accompanying gentle peroxide solution over the stain. This will change the stain and odor into an evaporable gas of water and oxygen. Let air dry.
Tip: For more stubborn stains, cover the area with plastic wrap to let it stay moist.
If the stain is still there, it means you may have not used enough cleaning solution. Repeat steps as necessary.
Urine Erase is designed to remove stains as old as 20 years old, so there’s no need to throw away that stained mattress. The product also has a money back guarantee, so be rest assured that your money is well spent. To prevent future stains, use a waterproof mattress cover or an underpad.
