If a child, pet or adult has an accident on a pillow top mattress, you may begin to panic. Urine on a pillow top mattress may seem impossible to remove. The offensive and unsightly urine stains can ruin the look of a pillow top mattress, and the urine can leave behind a lingering smell. You may feel compelled to throw the pillow top mattress out, but you can save yourself money by cleaning it with items you have around your home.
Wear gloves to protect your health. Blot the urine stain with a dry cloth to absorb any lingering liquid. Apply a slight pressure to soak up the urine, but do not scrub so as not to spread the stain.
Pour vinegar over the urine. Do not oversaturate the area with the vinegar; pour enough over it to soak the area.
Blot the urine area with a clean cloth to absorb any excess liquid. If you still notice the stain, treat it with hydrogen peroxide.
Fill a spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide. Spray it onto the stain, and allow it to sit for five to 10 minutes. Blot the area dry.
Sprinkle baking soda over the area to cover the urine stain completely. Let the baking soda sit overnight.
Remove the baking soda with a vacuum cleaner. This removes any lingering odors.
