A bundle of cotton sheets fell on the floor in the spare room and I guess Chii and Felicia found the perfect potty. I tried soaking the sheets three different times-bleach, baking soda, heavily scented soap and they still smell like litterbox. I have a spray called OdoBan that someone said you can use in laundry, I haven't tried it yet and I don't want to throw out the sheets...suggestions???

Try soaking them in white vinegar. Vinegar is good for cleaning pet accidents and removing smells.

Try soaking the sheets in an enzyme neutralizing cleaner (like Nature's Miracle).

I'd give white vinegar a try too, and would also try bagging the cleaned sheets VERY well and popping them into the deep freeze for a week.
This works incredibly well for a number of different smells as freezing kills a lot of odour-causing bacteria.

I've got them soaking with the vinegar, then I'll do a soak of the Nature...and if that doesn't work I'll try the freezing next. Never heard of that but definitely worth a try!!! Thankslittle angel

Usually just a wash with Natures Miracle or Pure Ayre added works for me.
