Default Dog pee on feather down comforter

Not sure how I clean the dog pee from a feather down comforter. It did soak in to the feathers - not a huge amount but enough that I know I have to clean it. I thought about professional dry cleaning but then thought about those "do at home" dry cleaning in the dryer solutions. Never used them and don't know if it would work. Appreciate some advice.

The at home dry cleaning kit will not work. They're really for a touch up dry clean but your comforter needs to be really cleaned to remove the urine.
Take it to the dry cleaner if it's not washable.

Professional dry cleaner. We used to have a lovely cat that thought our feather down comforter was her litter box and had our comforter professionally dry cleaned several times. It looks as good as new!

My dog did the exact same thing! The comforter was on the floor because I was making the bed. I left the bedroom for a few minutes, and I returned to dog urine on my white feather down comforter. I rushed it to the cleaners, and they were able to get out the stains and the smell.

Dry cleaner charged us extra for bio hazard "spill" or some such nonsense. Cost $60 to clean a king size feather comforter that had virtually droplets of puppy peepee.
NO MORE DOGS ON BEDS!!

I once washed a feather down comforter and used a tennis shoe with it in the dryer which beats it back into shape in the dryer so it doesn't bunch up in spots and it worked like a charm. I would only do it if it happens frequently or if dry cleaning is an expense out of reach and it depends on the cost of the comforter itself. Same technique can be used to wash pillows regardless of the stuffing inside.

I just read about using the tennis ball in a magazine to fluff up comforters or pillows. I washed my feather mattress cover and it turned out fine. Just be glad it wasn't cat pee.

Good to know for when Artie becomes incontinent. I'm not hoping; I just know that it's inevitable with my monster. If it's not one thing, it's another... Once Artie hits old age, he's going to be a crotchety, peeing curmudgeon, I just know it.

That would work too - I should say I used the old white cotton cloth keds with the rubber soles in the dryer - it has to be something that won't melt all over.
