How to Remove Mouse Urine Stains from Clothing
If those little pests have gotten into your closet, they may have left you a present on your clothes. Gross! But don’t worry, removing mouse urine stains from clothing is as simple as removing them from your carpet.
What you will need:
- Large bowl or bucket (large enough to fit the clothing piece)
- Distilled white vinegar
- Hot water (cold water for delicate fabrics)
- Whenever you use any cleaning solution on clothing, take a small, hard-to-see area of the clothing first and test it. This will help you to determine if the solution will damage or change your clothing.
- Fill the bowl or bucket with two parts hot or cold water (depending on the fabric type) and one part distilled white vinegar.
- Take the stained piece of fabric or clothing and put it into the solution. Allow the fabric to soak (fully) for at least 30 (but up to 45) minutes.
- Remove the stained piece of clothing from the treatment and rinse it thoroughly, several times so that you get all of the vinegar solution out. Ring out the piece of clothing gently.
- Wash the piece of clothing as you usually would. Instead of putting it through the dryer, allow it to air dry. If you put it through the dryer, it will set the stain and you will not be able to remove it, so do not put it through the dryer until you’re positive that the stain is gone.
If you still have not removed the urine stain, you can also follow the process listed above with a mixture that includes one teaspoon of ammonia for each half cup of water that you have in the bowl you are using. Otherwise, you may have to consider professional cleaning to remove the mouse urine stain.
