Our toddler was exhausted from a busy morning, came home, and fell asleep on the couch. You can do this no matter where on the couch the pee is located, but it is especially easy on a removable cushion where you can “step” on it with the most force to soak it up! If you feel confident that the pee is primarily on the surface, there’s no need to re-wet – just scrub and wipe with the vinegar. Just simply measure out about 1 cup of baking soda, at least for a spot size about as big as one cushion. Then add about 15-20 drops of lavender essential oil per 1 cup (adjust your amounts based on how much you need).
