How do you clean dog urine out of foam? Here’s What to Expect

Add baking soda.

Baking soda is an excellent agent to whiten surfaces and eliminate odors. Luckily baking soda is a powder that soaks up liquid also. So when you sprinkle the baking soda on the surface out of your memory foam mattress, the baking soda will neutralize odors and reduce any yellowing.

  • Soak up as much wetness as possible.

    Memory foam is thick and slow to rise. You need to make sure to apply firm pressure to the urine-soaked area to draw the moisture out. Blot the area until you’ve gotten the bulk of the urine out. If you still see urine soaking into your towel when you press down, you know it isn’t time to stop.

    This part can be time-consuming, but trust us—it’s crucial to remove as much of that as humanly possible. Any moisture is bad, but urine can do some major damage.

    How to Remove Urine Stains from a Mattress

    If stains have already set in before you get to the cleanup process, you may need to use a heavier cleaning solution. For this, you will need baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and dish soap.

  • Create a solution using 8 ounces of hydrogen peroxide, 3 tablespoons of baking soda, and 2 to 4 drops of dish soap or liquid laundry detergent.
  • Using a spray bottle, apply the solution generously to any stained areas, allowing the mixture to soak in.
  • Wait for the mixture to dry. A solid baking soda residue layer will form after a few hours.
  • Vacuum off the baking soda and check to see if the stain remains.
  • Repeat as needed.
  • This process uses a tougher cleaning solution that you allow to fully soak into the stained area. As the solution dries and the peroxide evaporates, the urine is drawn upwards with the baking soda. This helps to neutralize both stains and smells.

    Keep in mind that peroxide can bleach some materials, so you may want to test it on a small, inconspicuous area before using it on larger stains. Peroxide may also slightly damage or discolor materials like memory foam. Use it sparingly, and be sure to remove any colored bedding from the area to avoid bleaching.
