Effective DIY Method for Removing Urine Stains and Smell {Recipe}

Whether you have a pet or a toddler, chances are that you are going to have a urine stain on your mattress. Getting those stains off (and particularly getting the smell out) can be difficult. There is however, a really effective and really inexpensive method for removing urine from mattresses, clothing, carpet and just about anything else that you may need.

You will need to mix these ingredients together:

Note that if you mix them together in a spray bottle, the baking soda may foam so it is best to mix them and then pour into the spray bottle once the foam has receded. Using the mixture is really easy. You just have to spray the area that needs to be treated and let it sit for about an hour or so. You may want to ventilate the room or turn a fan on so that the smell doesn’t get to you. When you come back, your stains should be completely gone and the best part is that they will take the smell with them.

Incidentally, hydrogen peroxide is an excellent blood stain remover so if you have blood on your clothing, carpeting or other fabric, you can just dab a bit of peroxide on it and it should lift off easily. This particular recipe is also great for getting the skunk smell out of your pets. If you have rambunctious dogs that like to chase skunks, you know what smell we’re talking about. Just give him a bath in the baking soda mixture and the smell will go away.

    Removing urine stains and smell can be one heck of a chore. I know in my experience removing cat urine was a lot harder then human urine and the smells did not go completely away. I really enjoyed reading your post on home made recipes and I had actually written a blog post that I would like to share with you reader that do not have time to remove urine odors naturally as I feel there are a lot that might find some interest in this. I really hope that this will be ok with you if not please fell free to delete.

    My son had an accident on the very colorful rug in his bedroom. Will the peroxide in this solution discolor the rug? There isn’t an inconspicuous spot to test first.

    Not sure if I did something wrong, kind of hard to with 3 ingredients, however the baking soda did NOT dissolve in the peroxide even after shaking the bottle. I mixed it separately, then poured with a funnel into a spray bottle. It clogged the bottle. Found a larger one, and it seemed to work a little better, but still the baking soda did not completely dissolve. I sprayed some old spots my grandson had left and it lightened it a little but did not eliminate. Still smells unfortunately . Since the baking soda is not dissolving, I am basically just spraying Hydrogen Peroxide. Any tips ?

    This homemade urine stain remover works very well. Just bought a brand new Poang chair from Ikea and of course the first thing that the cat does is pee on it. I was SO upset because the cushions on those chairs are practically impossible to get back in.

    I did this treatment once and it lightened the stain but did not remove it. Do not put items in the dryer unless you are 100% certain the stain is gone! I soaked it the next day with half vinegar and half water and then did the treatment again after that. It’s finally gone and, though I’ve spent at least 4 hours getting the cushions back in, my chair is put back together. And kitty is in the dog house.
