    Default Pee soaked boots what to do

    DD wet herself at the shops today, totally random - has never happened before (she's 6). Anyway accidents happen not worried but she had her black boots on and they are soaked too. What do I do with them? Do I rinse them or try to clean them somehow? Don't really know what to do but know I need to do something.

    My DD did this the other week (she's 5 1/2) and it all went into her boots. I didn't wash them, just aired them in the sun and they seem to be OK, no smell as far as I can tell.

    Could you put bicarb in there to soak it all up and take away the smell then vacuum it out? I use bicarb all the time for that sort of thing where I'm worried about stinks.

    Can I do both? Bicarb and then in the sun? Being that you can't open them up like sneakers can I'm worried about them not drying out properly.

    For sure. But make sure you have a way of sucking it out from the toes etc if you have a small vacuum fitting. Most will probably brush out though. Bicarb should remove smell no worries but give it a couple of days.

    My teenage DD put leather school shoes in the washing machine. It wasn't that great for them, but they weren't completely ruined either.

    I would do the following:

    Put rags inside the shoes to soak up as much moisture as possible
    Put vinegar in a spray bottle and give a good spray
    Leave in the sun for a day or until dried.

    When dry and if still smelly, put bicarb in and leave in the sun a bit longer.
    Vacuum the bicarb out.

    If still smelly, spray with a good amount of Febreeze and leave in the sun.

    If that fails - washing machine.

    Oh they'll be fine. Another thing you can use is those anti bacterial wipes (like wet one's but for cleaning) to get most of it out first. Then bicarb. They'll air no worries.
