How to Remove Urine Stains

Non-washable Fabrics

Follow these steps to remove urine stains from non-washable fabrics such as Acetate, Carpet (synthetic or wool), Fiberglass, Rayon, Silk, Triacetate and Wool:

  • Sponge (the method of using a dampened pad to apply light strokes, moving outward from the center of the stain) the area with water or club soda immediately to dilute the stain.
  • Apply a wet spotter and a few drops of ammonia. (Do not use ammonia on silk or wool.)
  • Cover with an absorbent pad moistened with wet spotter.
  • Let it stand as long as any stain is being removed.
  • Change the pad as it picks up the stain.
  • Keep both the pad and stain moist with wet spotter and ammonia.
  • Flush (the method of applying stain remover to loosen staining material and residue from stain removers) with water, then apply wet spotter with a few drops of white vinegar.
  • Flush well with water and repeat if necessary.
  • Allow to dry.
  • On carpets, after following these procedures, apply a carpet stain remover.
