How to clean peed in shoes?
 
Title says it all. :yuck: My dd peed herself on the bus yesterday. I asked her why and she said she forgot to use the bathroom at school the entire day. She got on the bus and had an accident on the way back because she could no longer hold it. I was able to get the backpack and coat clean but the shoes I'm not sure what to do about. They are new. Do I have to junk them? Lysol? Air out? Or could they possibly be washer/dryer safe?

Also, same tornado drew in pen on her jeans. :banghead: I can't get it out, any suggestions? I feel like ever since I became pregnant the terrible twos came back twofold except she is 6! I didn't realize kids that age still regress when a new baby is coming. :cry:

Are they tennis shoes? I throw those in the washer on gentle and air dry with no issue. I have even hand washed the inside of dd's leather mary janes and let them air dry with good luck too. The color looked funny at first but it dried out and looked fine.

Also, I usually have good luck with rubbing alcohol or hairspray getting ink out of clothes.

Same tornado??? Lol. I used to always draw on my jeans with pen. It comes out after a couple washes.

If its a sneaker type shoe, you can throw them in the washing machine on gentle with a few other items. Remember to take the insoles out while washing. Air dry and stuff shoes with newspaper. Hang the insoles up to dry.

Rubbing alcohol can take out pen marks. Dampen with alcohol and blot with a rag to pull out the ink.

What kind of shoes? If they're sneakers, you can definitely put them in the wash (I would dry them, though, as some parts might melt at high heat). Leather flats, not so much.

My 6 yo dd gets paint, ink, marker, etc. all over her clothes, all the time. It's not intentional, she's just an enthusiastic artist. I treat with stain stick before washing, but if it doesn't come out, I just let her keep wearing the clothes with paint or ink stains.

They are those skater type shoes. Suede (or suede looking material), black and hot pink. I tried to find them on the website of store where I bought them but they didn't have them online (walmart). They were expensive-ish for a family that buys shoes 3 pairs at a time so I'm a little disappointed if I have to junk these. Oh well though, I buy them from walmart for reasons like these those. If these were the 60 dollar kids shoes from somewhere like Journeys I'd be panicking more.

Oh we get unintentional marks as well and that doesn't bug me. I just get upset when she purposely does something she has been previously told not to do. I've even told her, if she would like to draw on pants she has a couple pairs of special pants she can do that to and wear. She does that to them and then she goes and colors all over her school clothes as well. It worked for a little bit but I guess now I have to find something new to occupy her from doing it.
