I'm sure this has been covered, but I am in such a rush I don't have time to search.
I'm concerned most about the bacteria. I'm pretty sure the top of the mattress is polyester or something because nothing will soak up in to the paper towel. I did have a mattress pad but it wasn't waterproof, so some of the pee went into that. I put baking soda on it to get rid of the smell and dampness and I will vacuum.
It just drives me nuts that I can't the the pee out that is now deep in the mattress
The only thing I can think of would be to elevate the mattress upside down, outside in your yard or some area you can do so and then spray water into the area and let it drip out. Repeat again and let dry.
Do you have the ability to take the mattress out and put it in the sun or something? The sun will kill a lot of nasty stuff.
There's a commerical product called Bac-Out that has enzymes that will eat the bacteria too. You could spray that on.
I hope you get some more ideas!
There's no bacteria in urine unless he has an infection, just nasty smelling ammonia and such. I've done the same, borax, baking soda, vinegar, vacuuming. So don't worry about bacteria. Look into a wool topper for future accidents maybe.
