My not-quite potty-ready 2YO has urinated on the couch a couple of times. I washed it up with soap and water, and there's no visible stain, but I'm starting to get a mild yet nagging smell in the general vicinity. I'm thinking that it's the pee. Any thoughts on going back and deodorizing? The sofa is bright red, and microfiber. I'm concerned about color-fastness, of course.

Thanks!

Are their cushons on the sofa that you could put out in the sun for a little while?

you can try nature's miracle, you'll find it in pet stores. It's has enzymes that break down whatevers causing the urine smell, though you'll need to soak the cusions and def. test first for color fastness.

Also, I've found that a mixture of white vinegar and water with tea tree and lavender essential oils is really good at neutralizing odors.

Can you use a carpet steamer with (insert natural, non-toxic cleaning potion of choice) instead of the icky cleaner?

I don't come here anymore. MDC has become overgrown with ads & useless extra forums.

Kids N' Pets cleaner. It is an enzyme cleaner and it works great. You let it soak in and as it dries, the smell and stain go away.
