A very sad thing happened while we were away on vacation - our cat Tobi was accidentally shut in our bedroom overnight until my MIL heard him when she came to feed the pets the next morning. Poor cat was understandably freaked and peed and pooped in our bedroom, which sat for a week while we were gone. Of course he didn't do it on our ratty carpet that needs to be torn out anyway. He did it on our brand freaking new expensive wool, dry clean only gorgeous duvet cover/down comforter
, which soaked into our sheets a little bit, and our mattress pad, AND our brand freaking new pillowtop bed
I know it's our own fault. Thank goodness for our comforter or the damage to the mattress would've been way worse. I've washed the sheets, the mattress pad and the comforter. The sheets seem ok (I think), we'll see about the rest
:. I dumped baking soda on the bed and duvet cover. It decreased the smell on the bed - but I can still catch a whiff of it. The duvet cover's in worse shape than I originally thought. Will take it to the dry cleaner's tomorrow. Can they do anything with that kind of situation? Not sure if I should risk washing it in a regular washer.
As for the mattress - dh is thinking spraying febreeze on it might help? I'm wondering though how much is that just a strong perfume used to mask other odors? Would an ozonator would be of any use? Any other ideas? Thanks muchly - I'd really like to sleep on my bed again.
