How do I remove the smell of urine?

To remove the smell of urine from clothing, run the clothes in the washing machine using cold water, 1 cup of white vinegar, and no detergent. Then run the load again, this time with the usual amount of laundry detergent and at the appropriate temperature.

Also, try switching to Prevail® protective hygiene products. Caregivers and patients reported a 39% reduction in instances of excessive urine odor after switching to Prevail.*

*according to a survey conducted in Q4 2017 among 128 caregivers and patients using absorbent adult incontinence products in the home
