Dry Cleaners Guide: How to remove urine stains from clothing & garments?

Our tips

When it comes to preserving and extending the life of fabrics, clothes & furnishings, dry cleaning is definitely the way to go.

Dry cleaners have a reputation for being the stain removal masters, but most will tell you that when it comes to removing urine stains & odours, traditional methods do not work.

Chemical cleaning products (both household & professional) only encapsulate the uric acid crystals – leaving the stain & temporarily masking the odour. Steam cleaning also presents problems as it can spread the urine crystal residue over a wider area.

The most effective solution is high quality bio-enzymatic products such as urineFREE.

urineFREE is not just any urine remover. Its high quality bio-enzymatic formula not only eliminates the uric acid crystals but also the urea and urochrome components, removing both the urine stain AND the urine odour – for good.

Dry cleaners know that urine stains can damage fabrics. urineFREE allows dry cleaners to remove these stains providing better customer satisfaction.

urineFREE contains no harsh, hazardous or bleaching ingredients, is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Better yet, urineFREE is water based so will do no more damage to fabrics than water would. Always check for colourfastness before use.

How to detect the urine stain

Many urine stains are invisible to the naked eye, yet certainly not to the nose. However, the source of the smell can often be difficult to trace on fabrics.

The urineFREE Urine Detector solves this problem. Using LED light technology, similar to that used by Police Forensic Officers, the pocket size torch will fluoresce dried urine in a darkened room, making it easy to identify and treat the right area. Then, after treatment in accordance with the product directions, use urineFREE Urine Detector again to check that you have removed it all.

How urineFREE works

Some general cleaners can remove the water soluble components of urine (urea and urochrome) but leave behind the non-soluble uric acid crystals that retain the odour and stain. These crystals attach to surfaces and are very difficult to dislodge. Any humidity or dampness will trigger the dormant crystals bringing back the odour.

urineFREE’s bio-enzymatic formula “eats up’’ the uric acid crystals whilst removing the urea and urochrome components, eliminating both the urine stain AND the odour for good.
