My child has had an accident and pee went into her hello kitty boots. Any suggestions on how to get smell out? I'm afraid if they go in washer all the sparkles will fall off.

I would give it try in the washing machine with washing liquid and then leave them out in the son to dry,if its not sunny place them somewhere where they can dry. If the smell isnt gone or the sparkly all gone and they dont dry proberbly then rather get her new ones.

I think you can give it a go if you can get them dry, place them by a fan like I suggested or over a heat vent. I use tea bags, three or four in each shoe for my son's cross country running shoes. They get wet, and they reek. The tea bags work quite well. I f it was just one accident, the odor should be too bad, Here's hoping!

I find that once boots are washed, or get soaked, they never smell right....pee or no pee. They never quite dry, and can get moldy. Also, if they don't dry properly, your chance your daughter getting athletes foot. My recommendation? Throw them out. Sorry.

Thank you all and yes no sparkle boots would be pretty as long as the pee smell was gone!!

I put boots in the washer all the time. If the sparkles are glued on though, and not mixed into the plastic, there is a good chance that they'll come off. Although, it could be argued that boots without sparkles are better than boots that smell like pee.

I think your best bet if you don't want to risk the washing machine is an enzyme based pet stain / odor remover.

You could also look up instructions for cleaning urine out of carpet or mattresses. It will be some combination of baking soda, dish soap, vinegar, and lots of rinsing and patting.

You do mean the inside of the boots, right? After you soak up as much as you can with a towel, take a damp sponge soaked in baking soda and water and sponge clean the insides. Then put them by a fan to get all of the way dry. If they still smell, you can try a pet odor product, febreeze or even sprinkle more baking soda into the boots.
Can you pull the lining out? That would be the best way.
