HELP, QUICK!!! Urine Smell on Sofa!
My daughter had an accident a few days ago. I cleaned it up really good and then two days later noticed that I could smell it on the sofa cushion. I washed the cover and my husband removed some of the outer padding of the cushion and Febreezed it twice. There is still a urine smell...not as bad, but still....I'm losing my mind trying to figure out what to do....My inlaws, my parents and some friends will be here starting tonight for my daughter's birthday weekend and I CANNOT have my couch smelling like pee! PLEASE help me fix this by tonight!!!!! I have a dry floor steam cleaner.....but I'm not sure if that would work....I heard about vinegar, but I'm not sure if that would just smell worse.....HELP! FAST! :) Thanks Mamas!

Kids and Pets. found in the carpet cleaning section of walmart. gets out ANY smell, even cat urine! Has a huge list on it of all the stains and smells it removes. It's also non toxic and has a nice scent that is no chemically. Just don't forget to shake it before you use it. It distributes the enzymes.

When our dog used to urinate on my carpet the only thing that removed that smell was Febreeze Odor Neutralizer in the citrus scent. If you had the time you could put the cushions outside in the sun. Mom always "sunned" mattresses and pillows when I was growing up. I still do this when I can and it works wonderfully, especially if you use a spray like the Febreeze first.

most good urine odors take a few days to work! Natures Miracle works great (found at pet stores) The one thing about removing urine odor is you have to DRINCH the area, you can't just spritz it with something. It won't get all the way to the source of the smell. Vinegar works good too, but I would certainly leave the cushion outdoors to dry and get rid of the vinegar smell too! Good Luck to you.

Unless you already have this it will not help tonight but I would use Sol-U-Mel. It takes care of odors and stains.

Vinegar works every time on cleaning up pee, neutralizing the smell as it dries. It will smell like vinegar at first, but as it dries, the smell dissipates. Afterwards, your couch will be fresh and clean!

I've always used the spray you buy at a pet store for pet urine accidents. It's called Nature's Miracle. You have to spray it down a good bit to really get into the padding sometimes.

drench the area in extra strenght Febreeze. Don't spray, open the bottle and dump.
