Cleaning mattress.

I don't have any idea where to post this, but I figure this would be the best spot.

It's kind of a jumble how this all happened, so I'll just go over what happened yesterday.

I bought some diapers, they were a bit too small, but they still fit, even if they were a tight fit. So I decided to use them.

The first two I used to gauge how much it could hold. I overfilled the second one and got my couch a bit damp. Wasn't had to clean up.

I wore a 3rd one to bed last night, and I wet it one less time than I did on the second, and I woke up to find a huge wet spot on my bed!

I don't know why it leaked, but it did.

I've been going at it with a towel for about 5 minutes, and I think it's stained.

I'd perfer not to flip my mattress over either since the other side has a rip on the fabric, so the foam below it is exposed.

I figured that the best place to ask this would be here, because it's on topic (bed is wet) and I figured you guys would be experts on this.

I've been trying various things online, but they aren't really that effective.

Thank you in advance.

Edit: I decided it was best just to flip the mattress for now. Though that didn't help much with the stain or my mental anguish. I'm going go back to sleep, but please, I'm open to suggestions.

Well, I don't really think there is a way to get the stain out. But using something like a fabric cleaner and odor remover might work as far as the smell and maybe a little of the stain. Also some pet store urine remover stuff might work as well. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestion.
Yeah it got the stench out, but the stain is still there.
I've heard that once a stain is in a mattress, it doesn't come out..
Please tell me this isn't true.

I really can't add more help for your stain problem, but for future reference most diapers don't hold nearly as much laying down, most diapers don't have the best leak guards at the top. I've had that problem before, it seems like just one wetting and the bed gets wet too. Good luck in getting the stain out.

I leaned my lesson about lying down and wetthing, but thanks for the tip anyways.
The thing is, unless I wet while I was sleeping, I didn't wet while lying down. So either I wet the bed or the diaper leaked.
Whatever was the case, that's in the past, I just hope I can get this stain out.

I almost forgot to mention it leaked out the side, not the front like it typically does.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Um, I really don't know. I have had to deal with leaks before, and so far...the stains don't come out :( sorry. I'm sure there is some way to get most of it out though.

Well, that's not that great. Oh well.
If I just dwell on this all it'll do is make me more stressed out.
Thank you for the suggestions.

For future reference, use a cover or something...Why not put sheets over your bed? That should hide it...Or just say you spilled something else...Or even you accidentally wet the bed...It's not that big of a deal

I usually used my blanket as a sheet of sorts while I used my comforter as my main blanket, but my room is warm so I put out of my room.

I guess the best thing to do would be to buy sheets, I don't even have an idea of why I was so stressed out earlier.

I guess to me wetting the bed is that big of a deal.

Whatever, it'd done and over with. Sitting here and worrying about it won't help.

Nothing more can be done I guess, so I'll just have to live with it.

Thank you for all the help guys.

You should strongly consider getting a waterproof mattress cover, they make ones that are not all plasticky and look just like regular mattress covers, this could help future stains.

As for the task at hand, here's what you need to do. First off, it will involve water, make sure it's cold water. If you use hot water, it could cause the stain to set in - not good. First off, get the cold water all over the stain, then use a laundry pre-treater, such as shout, or my preference for laundry stains, Oxy-clean. Generously spray the treater on the stain, make sure it's wet with the cold water and let the pre-treater set in for about 5 minutes. Then, with a wet cold clean terry-cloth you'll need to scrub, and scrub and scrub some more. Then use another clean cloth, wipe off any soapy residue, then use another dry cloth and press down and blot to dry. This should work for you.

If that does not work, I would recommend that you treat the stain with a paste of ammonia and COLOR SAFE bleach (clorox 2 or a generic equivalent) let sit for 30 minutes and try to scrub with warm water-soaked washcloth and let dry.

I was sorry to hear about your mattress Miles. But a good mattress cover will work to keep your mattress dry and hide the stain from prying eyes.:smile:

Ace has some good advise. Added to that, does your dad have a shop vac? Once the mattress is wet, you can pull out a lot of the stain with a good wet vac. If all that fails, try a carpet cleaner. They make Resolve Pet Stain remover and it's sold in grocery stores. Again, the wet vac is good for the last stage. If all else fails, get sick and vomit on the spot. Now you don't have to explain anything!

Thanks for the advice guys.
I'll try the method ace suggested along with dogboy's suggestion of a shop vac (which happens to be in my bathroom right now)

I'll post the results.

Wow.
That's all I can say.
The mattress doesn't look as good as new, and I'd be lying if I said it did, but the Oxy Clean + Cold Water + Shop Vac suggestion worked VERY well.
The stain is gone. Even if you look at the mattress from different angles it is completely gone.

The matress looks a bit worn out now, but it's better than having a huge stain in it.

Thank you guys so much.

I never really cared about stains in my mattress because I was a bed wetter growing up so there are already a lot of stains on my mattress, but i might try the Oxy Clean + Cold Water + Shop Vac suggestion.

lol... I never managed to stain my mattress ...

but one time my mother was cleaning her room and manage to spill an entire 12oz bottle of Windex glass cleaner on her bed. If you look carefully now, you can faintly make out the blue splotches all over the mattress
