Forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong forum, I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with getting cat urine out of 100% polyester?
Earlier today I caught one of the kittens peeing on my favorite polyester blanket. I managed to grab the little guy and move him to the litter box before he made too big of a mess and soaked up what little pee there was with some paper towel then put the blanket it in the wash as quickly as I could. I figured that since it was such a small area that a quick cycle in the wash and it would be fine and It came out smelling clean so I dried it but now I am noticing a small patch of cat urine smell in the bottom corner.
I have had luck in the past soaking extremely saturated, dried on, garments in a white vinegar and warm water solutions for a few hours before washing and they came out like new. Is that safe for this blanket? It says it should be machine washed cold on a gentle cycle. I;d really hate to do anything that is going to damage the blanket or make it loose softness if I don't have to.
I'm also worried that now that I have washed and dried it that the smell is set and that nothing is going to get it out :( Any tips?
