How can you remove the urine smell from sheets? My grandson wet the bed and even though we washed the sheets and blankets they still smell like urine.

Put a cup of white vinegar in the washing machine along with the detergent.
Not only will the vinegar remove the urine smell, it will also remove any irritants that might be in the linens. It works in place of fabric softener and gives your dryer a longer lifespan by not "gunking" up the lint catching device.
Sheets should always be washed in hottest possible water... I use cold rinse..
There is a product named Odoban (try Sam's Club). A little in the wash water has removed every odor I've ever tried it on, though in the case of urine I think Iwould try vinegar in the wash cycle and add Odoban to the rinse.
