Can anyone help me get this funky smell out of my mop?

 My husband and I just bought a mop recently and my darling little mommy in law used it mop up our dog's pee. Not that I mind that, but she didn't clean it and she has done it more than once. Now I can't get the pee smell out of our mop. And I REALLY need to mop my floor. Any suggestions?

 if you can take the mop head off or even if you cant, fill your bucket with water and bleach and leave it overnight to soak.

 bleach and whatever floor detergent you have works all the time.

baking soda and hot water, or even better Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda and hot water. Just let it soak in a bucket for an hour or two and then rinse.

That mixture always took the smell out of the carpets, so I would assume it would work for the mop too.
