How To Cope And Remove The Scent From Urinary Incontinence?

How To Cope And Remove The Scent From Urinary Incontinence?

My husband has been urinary incontinence for one and a half years. He's been to doctors with no intervention benefiting. I have come to realize it's part of this illness. But I have tried everything to remove the stains and sent. He also fails to change clothes so the smell is intense. He just doesn't have control or he fails to go to a bathroom. Apathy is the result. Any suggestions?

Glade makes a wonderful pet odour removal for carpets and works well for human odour . (.White bottle with blue lid.) Downie Unstopables in laundry also works well on bedding and clothes.. OK I have done my Comercial for today.LOL.😁 My friend replaced all her carpet s with flooring.She said she had tried everything.I guess if you can afford to it would be the best.

For the floor I use vinegar in a spray bottle and a swifter mop with disposable wet wipes after first using paper towels. On the bed I use machine washable pads and on top of them are layers of disposable pads and he’s in disposable underwear with pads inserted in them. My husband has been in continent for years now. When he’s up and can’t walk to the bathroom due to weakness, I bring him a urinal and assist him with standing in front of his chair. His chair has 3 pads on them and I check them every time he gets up. Most times he’s not aware that he’s going to need to urinate. Patience and understanding are very important in caring for your love one.

I used pet stain and odor removal past my husband's incontinent episodes. Works great! I even put a little bit in my mop water when mopping his bathroom floor and in the bleach dispenser when washing his clothes.

After absorbing as much as I can from the carpet with paper towels, I scrub the stain with a cleaning solution, repeat blocking with paper towels and the last step is covering the damp stain with baking soda and letting it stand for 24 hours before vacuuming... the baking soda kills the odor and pulls up and absorbs the remaining moisture and stain.

A solution of hydrogen peroxide is good for stains.
