  • sprinkle lots of baking soda on it and let it sit for a few hours, and then vaccum it. Then sprinkle some on after before you put sheets back on.

  • Put some bleach in a carpet cleaner, use the upholstery tool and directly clean the mattress as soon after naptime as you can. Don't go overboard. The guideline is one capful to one gallon of water. There should NOT be fumes to knock you out. Then have a sleep-over in the family room, at a hotel, at a friend's house, in your room, wherever you can go and let it dry over-night.

    I know a lot of people are anit-bleach these days. But it works great for killing germs. And probably a lot of people who hate it are using too much of it and hate the smell/fumes.

  • A 50/50 solution of ammonia and water in spray bottle. You will have to wait at least 3-5 hours before using the bed again. And I would invest in water proof mattress cover to save you from clean up again. Good Luck
