Question

My 2 year old leaked urine from her diaper onto my furniture cushion. My care instructions say to use a dry solvent. What is the best for urine?


Answer

If possible, remove the cushion and place it in the sun for several hours. If there is still an odor, use a pet odor remover enzyme on the cushion and allow it to dry. If necessary, follow with a spray of household hydrogen peroxide.
I would take the cushion cover to a dry cleaner for dry-cleaning with a solvent, since the instructions prohibit wet cleaning with a detergent solution.
