i stumbled across this recently and it worked so beautifully that i must pass it along!

i hate to admit it, but sometimes when the kids have accidents on their blankets, it sits in the laundry room for a few days until it gets washed and what i was learning, was that no matter how many times i washed it, it came out clean but still smelling like pee. particularly their fleece blankets. a lot of them were gifts so i didn't want to have to throw them out, so i found this (can't remember where) but it works wonders.


i take my bathtub and fill it a few inches with hot water. while the water is filling, i add distilled vinegar to it. i don't measure how much really, just what i think is enough with for one of the kids big blankets i use about 1/3 of a gallon jug. after i turn the water off, i pour baking soda into the bath, again not really tracking how much i put in. what happens is the baking soda and vinegar mix and makes a fizzing action. i then add the blanket and let it sit. i usually let it soak for a couple loads of laundry (every time i switch a load, i flip the blanket over to make sure it gets even soak-age). then i throw it into the washing machine with like colors, add regular soap, but i also add a little more vinegar and right after it finishes filling up, i add a little more baking soda. just for good measure. dry as normal and the pee smell should be completely gone!
