The importance of a fitted sheet

In addition, a fitted sheet also plays a crucial role in protecting your mattress from peeing accidents. It acts as an extra layer of absorption on top of the mattress protector, which helps to trap moisture and prevent it from reaching the mattress.

It is always convenient to have several fitted sheets on hand so that a quick replacement can take place after a peeing accident. This way, you can quickly and easily change the bed without much effort. Washing fitted sheets regularly also helps prevent odors and bacteria, maintaining a hygienic sleeping environment.

Cleaning mattress after peeing accident

Despite the protection of a mattress protector and fitted sheet, the mattress may still absorb some moisture. It's important to act quickly to minimize stains and odors. Here are some steps to clean your mattress after a peeing accident:

        1. Act immediately: remove the bedding and mattress pad as soon as you notice that an accident has occurred. This helps prevent further penetration of moisture.
        2. Absorbing moisture: use a dry cloth to absorb as much moisture as possible. Press the cloth firmly on the wet spot without rubbing to prevent moisture from penetrating deeper into the mattress.
        3. Cleaning solution: Mix a mild cleaning solution of water and a little dish soap or vinegar. Dab a clean cloth in the solution and use it to gently clean the stained area.
        4. Drying: Allow the mattress to dry completely before replacing the mattress pad and bedding. You can do this by leaving the mattress in a well-ventilated area.

Regular cleaning and maintenance

Regular cleaning of the mattress pad and bedding is essential to maintaining a hygienic sleeping environment. Wash Dryly's mattress protector and fitted sheets in the washing machine weekly or after each accident according to instructions.

In addition, it is a good idea to air the mattress itself regularly. Remove the bedding and leave the mattress for several hours to reduce any humidity and prevent odors. It can also help to vacuum the mattress to remove dander, dust and allergens. This in turn extends the life of the mattress.

Additional tips for success during bedwetting alarm training

  • Invest in quality: Choose a high-quality mattress protector that is durable and long-lasting. While cheap options may seem appealing, they may not be effective in protecting your mattress long-term.


  • Allergy-friendly option: If your child suffers from certain allergies, consider a mattress protector specially designed to block allergens such as dust mites.


  • Check the fit: Finally, make sure the mattress protector fits the size of your mattress properly. A properly fitting mattress pad prevents it from shifting while you sleep, thereby providing maximum protection.


Urinal training can be a challenging time, but with proper preparation and products such as a mattress protector, you can minimize the impact on your mattress. By using a waterproof mattress protector, a fitted sheet and regular cleaning, you can effectively protect and clean your mattress during the intense wee-wee workout.
