How to Remove Urine from a Mattress

If you've ever had a young child in your home you know that potty accidents are a guarantee. Night time accidents can become an issue if you are not properly protecting your child's mattress. We had purchased a hypoallergenic "water proof" mattress protector for our sons bed, but turns out it did absolutely no protecting. Before purchasing a new mattress protector we had to first clean the mattress. Then we made sure to purchases a Premium Mattress Protector . We made sure to purchase one that was 100% waterproof and had a warranty included. If you haven't had a chance to protect your mattress yet here is our simple and cheap solution to clean urine from a mattress.


  • 8oz 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • 3 TBSP baking soda
  • 1-2 drops of liquid dish soap
Carefully mix all ingredients and pour into a spray bottle. Spray the urine stain and watch as the stain disappears before your eyes (or within the next 5-10 minutes). Our stain was pretty bad so after I sprayed and waited, I sprayed a second time a rubbed it out with a rag. I then opened the window and turned the fan on to allow to dry. 

To prevent further stains find a mattress protector that is actually water proof… or cut open a garbage bag and place it underneath a regular mattress pad cover.
