    It is one of those from wally world that fold from a couch looking thing into a bed. Obviously you cant fit it into a washer. The child that sleeps in it still has a visit from the pee monster during the night. You can imagine how it smells now.

    Anyway give a suggestion on how to clean this please. It is all soft cloth with foam on the inside.

    Thanks

    I would suggest a steam cleaner. You can rent one from Home Depot or maybe a local place.

    Im no expert but thats what people use to clean there couches.

    I believe you call those things "daybeds." That might help in your search.

    I second the steam cleaner idea, as well. If it were me, I'd hang it up outside and thoroughly soak it with a bleachwater mix, then let it air-dry. But remember: I'm a redneck.

    Rubber sheets may prove to be a good investment, once the mattress is clean.

    Is IS called a futon, good call papola.

    And i'm in full agreement with the toss and replace, use a rubber mat. As acidic as urine can be, the smell probably won't come out of the foam. Good luck.

    P.S.
    Considered pull ups for night night time?
