    Ok so I jumped the gun after the bicarb suggestion and have loaded them up with it and put them in front of the heater. I'll vacuum out once it's dry and hope I didn't do the wrong thing - never thought to put rags in. I'm sleep deprived and so not thinking straight

    It'll be fine. Bicarb soaks up moisture then cakes and you can vacuum it out.

    Beware of drying moisture too fast on leather though. Not too close to heater. Better to dry leather slowly.

    I'd handwash them with laundry detergent and a cloth and leave them to dry undercover. They will definitely dry if left long enough, but you could use a hair dryer on medium heat on the inside if they are still damp. Also, there is a deodouriser spray called Febreeze I get from IGA that I spray on the carpet and couch cushions once I've washed them when Dd has accidents.

    Newspaper scrunched up works well to absorb moisture and odours. Could then probably combine with some of the other posters suggestions.
