Uhhh...that smell! Maybe TMI

Ok, so here's the thing. My Mom came to visit for a week while my husband was out of the country, and she has bladder control issues. She slept in my bed and wore and adult diaper for the whole time, except for the last night...anyway she forgot to put on the diaper thing and she peed on the couch. I felt terrible for her so I didn't make it a big deal, besides, there are covers that I can take off and wash. I washed the covers, and febreezed it to death, but there is still a smell! Is there any special trick anyone knows to get the smell out?

  • oxyclean works wonders on my dog's slip ups so I would assume for humans too.

  • when we were potty training my dd, she had accidents on the couch too...i read somewhere that soapy water mixed with vanilla worked, and i tried it, and it did after scrubbing it 2-3 times.

  • You want to get this stuff from a pet store - it works wonders for pet odor, so I'm sure it will work for you.
