Hi I use evans odour neutraliser it's very good for fabrics, carpets etc the only thing is I'm not sure where you can buy it my brother gets mine from an hospital supplies warehouse as he is in the trade..but you could Google it xxMum is in hospital, urine incontinent, whilst I was ironing her clean nighties I still got a 'whiff', they had been washed at 40degrees, threw them back in the machine and washed them again at 50. Is washing enough or should I be soaking them first ie like nappies? And, if so, what in? TIA, xx
Hi sleepless.. Yes I agree but I used the neutraliser on dad's bedroom carpet and the landing carpet and it worked and the pleasant fragrance lasts for quite some time I will ask him the name of the company that supply it xxI think the problem is when the urine has been exposed to the air and dried, because the bacteria have then had time to create that awful pong -- no way round that if you're bringing items from hospital though.
I always put my OH's wet things straight into the washing machine, with non- bio powder at 40° and have never had any problems.
And I do have a very good sense of smell!
That would be good to know, useful stuff to have in for carpets etc. or maybe even shoes, which are a pain to clean if they get wet inside?Hi sleepless..

Yes you can spray it on clothes, fabrics etc they also do an hospital standard sanitizer that I use on toilets and floor coverings.. Will ask him xxThat would be good to know, useful stuff to have in for carpets etc. or maybe even shoes, which are a pain to clean if they get wet inside?
Is the smell actually in the dryer? Have you emptied and washed the lint catcher. If your dryer has a water/moisture tray then take out and wash or soak in bicarbonate. What might also help is to soak a towel in bicarbonate give it a short spin and then put in the dryer and if detachable, might as well do same with the rubber pipe.Dusty at commented on the tumble dryeR .. That's my problem -was in a hurry so stuff shoved from washer into dryer before I had time to smell .. Now my whole kitchen reeks... Have tried Febreeze in dryer but no luck ... Any ideas .. Please !
Ha! Again!I was buying the Dettol laundry cleanser. It's AMAZING! Then it seemed to disappear from our local supermarkets. Every time I ordered it for home delivery I received 2 Dettol surface spray cleaners instead. If Armageddon arrives, I'll be the one who is fully loaded with anti-bac cleanser. You'll see me wandering about like a gun slinger, a spray in each hand.
