    Can you clean a urine soaked matress? 18th Apr 06 at 1:31 PM
    A friend's daughter stayed at the weekend (8 years old) and wet the bed. She never normally does this and therefore i didn't have anything over the matress other than a sheet. As she stayed laying in it for hours afterwards everything was soaked through. I have washed the bedding and taken the duvet into the dry-cleaners to be washed (its too big for my machine).

    We left the matress outside all day yesterday and sprayed with fibreeze and it seemed ok but having been inside all night it really smells this morning. It is now on a wire bed base so getting air from top and bottom and window in room is open. Is there anything else I can do? It feels dry to touch but smells and I assume must be wet inside?

    The thought of keeping a matress full of urine turns my stomach but buying a new one seems a bit excessive. Can I rescue it or should I ditch it?
