    Default Oh no my mattress is wet! Help!

    Ds came into my bed this morning and his nappy leaked (not night trained yet). Anyway the wee went through my protector . There is a wet patch (around 20cm diameter on my mattress. Does that mean I need a new mattress, what do I do?!!

    My protector guarantees to work if it doesn't then they replace my mattress where did you get it from ? Otherwise just leave it open to dry in the air .

    Just sponge it off and leave it to dry. I've used the hair dryer to speed up the process before too!

    Sponge off with a little bit of hot soapy water. If can take it outside in the sun do that. The sun works wonders.

    ds has his daytime sleep in my bed so all of our mattresses have a waterproof mattress protecter on them rather than just the plain old mattress protecters. As previous post said just sponge mattress and put it in the sun to dry.

    Can you open all the windows and curtains/blinds to allow the sun to get to it. even a few hours will make a difference
    Direct sun is better but it will help.

    I was going to suggest the bi carb to or a bit of diluted white vinegar to make sure no wee smells are left behind.
