Does anyone have any suggestions for eliminating/cleaning the pee smell out of ds's sneakers? They are light up sneakers and cannot be put into the washing machine. We tried to ignore it and they smelled AWFUL.<br><br>
I've put this off a week or 2 because I just can't think about it and dh said we need to think about it now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

try some enzymatic cleaner like nature's miracle. just spray it on, let the shoes dry and then smell to see if you need to reapply.

I would use a combination of your laundry detergent and white vinegar in a spray bottle and saturate the inside of the shoe. Then take a damp cloth and wipe it down the next day. When it dries completely, you can shake some baking soda in there, wait a few days, and shake it out.

Also agree..it is what I do for shoes in our home except I'll add a few drops of TTO because sometimes that stink is hard to shake around here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks for the responses. I found a citra-odor (from Citra-Solv) product that has enzyme action. I bought that and I'm trying that for now (I love Citra-Solv). and I put them outside in the sun. If this doesn't work, then I'll try the laundry det. and vinegar.<br><br>
I'm glad you're not doing the vinegar and Bs together; they neutralize each other and the combination is almost completely inert, after the volcano is done ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Now if I can just avoid accidents in the future. DS doesn't want to be "scheduled" for his pottying anymore. He'll only go when he's "not empty."

Baking soda and vinegar don't cancel each other out actually (it's not just water). It just becomes a buffer solution that cleans really well too. I've been experimenting with that at home and it's doing good things.
