Need Help Removing STINK

Postby gladesman » Fri Feb 08, 2013 3:41 pm

Ain't sure where to put this.

Freezer accidenatlly got unplugged with a lot of meat in it. Oh did it stink.

Any help on getting rid of the stink will be appreciated.

Refroze the mess before emptying

Have cleaned out with baking soda & water.

Airing it out presently

Getting ready to wash again with vinegar.

Then clorox

Then charcoal

Then newspaper stuffing with baking soda

Any other ideas greatly appreciated

Hate to dump it since it is still running strong.

Get some Super Clean and hit it with that about 2times, it will draw alot out. Other than that you have the right recipe.

I had the same thing happen a while back. I just washed it out real good. And filled it up with bleach water a few times over the next few weeks. Then let it sit for about a month to air out. And bleached it again and its good to go now.

Advance Auto, in the purple sprayer or gallon jug, it will remove the oils embedded in the plastic, I use it on everything. It will make your skin peel in a day if gloves arent used.

Once you get it cleaned out, with whichever method as suggested above,
I use bleach. Wipe it dry then put pure vanilla extract on a paper towel and wipe
entire inside and let air dry. Usually only one coat needed. Works well for rank
coolers too.

I got a friend that cleans out foreclosed houses and by the time he shows up to do the clean outs the power has been off for months and the fridge and freezers are usually full of nasty moldy smelly stuff..........he said he takes the unit outside and removes all the "stuff" and hits it with a pressure cleaner, lets it dry and sprays it with bleach and then repeats that a few times and it always works.......I had a freezer trip a breaker a few years ago and it was bad, thats how I learned about the pressure cleaner and the bleach trick!!!!!!!!!!!

did the same thing on my boat (cigar and squid) and tried all the above, do yourself a favor and toss it, the smell gets in the foam insulation and no way to get rid of it..

If you place a cup of clorox and a cup of ammomia next to each othet in the bottom of the freezer and leave the door shut for three days, you will rid the smell. Just don't mix the liquids or do it indoors!!!! The reaction between the gases will neatralize all odors :salute: The reaction between the liquids might nuetralize you :shock:

Had a serious case of dumb a$$ once and it worked well for me.

:salute: :old_glory: :salute:


P.S. If that don't work get you some Masengil, that sh!t will kill some odors for sure :toothy7:

CHunk it, chest freezer are still resonable, if you pay yourself 10 a hour while you try and get the stink out you save money by buying a new one, most homeowner policy cover replacing the food so you can take the check and buy a new one, but pressure wash and good ole sunshine will work after a while................ sucks

Thanks very much to all that helped on this one.

I'll be checking to see if Ole Man Jones idea (clorox/ammonia UN-MiXeD)) worked later this afternoon.

Have already done some of the others.

Hoping to get lucky.

Yeas late but better late than never.

Followed what Old Mother Jones recommended in his earlier post on Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:24 pm - His advise worked A OK and saved a big freezer.

Thanks MUCH to Mr Jones - Marshall that is.
