How to get pee stains from a mattress?

Our doggie was sick before he was put down and he lost control of his bladder. We scrubbed the mattresses and got the smell out, but there are yellow stains, help?

  • It's a brand new mattress, I can't afford to put out another $1600

  • Sorry babe! Unfortunately you are SOL! My DD dumped a large can of v8 in my bed. Brand new! Called professionals and was told mattresses don't come clean totally. Invest in a mattress cover so at least you don't have to look at it, and for preventative measures.

  • Lol you can't steam clean a mattress. I used to work for a cleaning company. It will soak into the padding and create mildew that you will breath in as long as you sleep on it. It won't dry like carpet. No offense at all! To anyone, but it will cause more harm than good.

  • You cannot steam clean a mattress - it is too thick to do so with out causing potential mold and mildew issues internally. Invest in a mattress cover and chalk it up to experience - never use a mattress without a cover.

  • You can never get it out of matresses. I am sorry hon. Its one of those things. Next time, you need to make sure the dog can not get to it and a plastic cover would be a good investment as well.
