Saturate the pee spot on the mattress with some Bio-Kleen Bac Out and just wait for it to dry. We've used it on our couch several times with no problems when DS has peed on it.

I presume this is on the mattress? Do you keep a mattress pad on the bed? They help a lot with keeping stuff from saturating the mattress. My best suggestion is to cover it in baking soda for a few hours and vacuum it up.

I used to cover it with cornstarch mixed with baking soda - it would absorb it and get rid of the smell. Then I'd vaccuum it up.

Pet stores have this awesome stuff called Nature's Miracle. It's some kind of natural enzyme liquid that gets out doggie pee smell so well that even the dog can't smell it. The liquid has no scent to it at all either (I hate scents!). Anyway, it works awesome on dog pee and I'm sure it would work on baby/tot pee as well. If it's a lot of pee you could saturate it with this and then shopvac it out or just blot it. I swear by the stuff tho! Good Luck!!

we've used an oxyclean knock-off with success a few times.

The problem I had with the natures miracle stuff is how much of it you have to use to saturate a mattress....
I didn't end up using enough, so then I had a really wet, alcoholy&toddler pee smelling bed...

I've been known to oxyclean the spot as best as I could and flipping it over (it is on a metal bed frame that is open on the bottom)
Next mattress rotation, I couldn't smell a thing
that was when we had all the windows open and had actual airflow in the house--I'm not sure how that would work in the winter

This just happened the other night and I used Tea Tree Oil. Not a whole lot just a few drops. I also figured that in case I hadn't got all the dampness out it would stop any possible fungus/mold growth.

Yup, this stuff works great (uses the same principle as "Nature's Miracle", which a PP mentioned). "Bac-Out" stands for BACTERIA OUT and it does this by using enzymes (and these enzymes literally break down the bacteria).

Not only do I use Bac-Out on my CDs, but I use it on the occasional cat stain and it works great (and cat urine is THE WORST when it comes to foul smell).

HTH!

I've heard a lot of good about nature's miracle for pet stains. I'd think it would work well for human stains.

I wanted to post a link to a good place I ordered an absorbent pad from:

http://www.bedwettingstore.com/bedwetting-overlay.htm

They carry them also at amazon.com so I'd check there because I think I found my cheaper on amazon.

I didn't care for the plastic matress covers as they seemed to make noise whenever we moved.

Um, hold the mattress over the potty?

I've heard that vinegar is good for getting rid of pee odors. I don't know from personal experience because we've always had either a plastic (yuck!!) or wool mattress cover since my oldest was born. My current "mattress cover" is simply an old wool blanket that lays between the cotton mattress pad and the fitted sheet.

Put the mattress out in the sun for a day. Easier to do in the Summer, but it works!

I've been known to use a small carpet cleaner - the kind for spots - to suck up all that I could. Then treat with Nature's Miracle and let it dry.
