How to Remove a Urine Stain.

Urine stains are composed of many different matters: salts, minerals, and pigment. That makes urine a water soluble stain which means that traditional solvent dry cleaning will not remove the stain or smell. If the garment is a dry clean only item you need to find a professional dry cleaner that uses the wet clean process to remove this type of stain or use the techniques below to remove the stain and odor.


Fresh Urine Stain:

Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent.



Dried Urine Stain:

Enzyme Stain Remove: BioKleen’s Bac-Out or Earth Friendly Product’s Everyday Stain and Odor Remover.


Oxidized Yellowed Urine Stain:

Oxygenated Non Chlorine Bleach – Sodium Carbonate & Sodium Percarbonate: Earth Friendly Product’s OXO Bright or Oxiclean.



If you are uncertain on how to handle a certain type of material then consult your professional dry cleaner.
