Id put it in a plastic sealed container covered in baking soda for a few days. Check it to see about the smell, and replace the soda as needed.
I recently purchased a gorgeous vintage down and rayon satin comforteré─Âonly to come home one day to a kitty é─˙accidenté─¨ on it. Luckily there is no staining, but the smell is terribleé─ÂI have a great product Ié─˘ve used in the past (Natureé─˘s Miracle), but it is mostly isopropyl alcohol and Ié─˘m terrified it will destroy the satin (or the down). The same company also makes a laundry detergent, which I have used in the past (though the alcohol stuff works better)é─ÂI know the cleaner will say they could get a stain out but not the odor.
So, what should I do? Soak the spot with the alcohol treatment? Try soaking the entire quilt in a soapy tub using the special detergent?
The stain is on the older side, maybe 2 weeks, because Ié─˘ve been hemming and hawing over what the heck I should do about it. Advice, warnings, and moral support are welcome!
I would do the same thing. Or, instead of baking soda, you could use clumping kitty litter with baking soda in it. This works for various odors, not just kitty accidents. Hmf, if they weren't so darn cute, cuddly and furry!Originally Posted by Lady Day
So just cover the comforter with dry baking soda? My concern is that I'm not actually *cleaning* the comforter, especially the feathers inside (eeew)...
Seriously, cats and vintage are sometimes just a bad combo.
Awesome. I will give it a whirl!
Now...where on earth can I get that much baking soda?? Smart and Final here I come!
I used to wash kitty accidents in vinegar. I am not sure how that would fair with vintage satin, but it's an option.
For what it's worth, I've loved you since Tuesday.

Definitely try the baking soda trick.
Nature's Miracle does work great on places like carpets though folks. Anyone with indoor pets can benefit from it. Good stuff!
