Hunting The Stink

Ever done this?   The house has been cleaned to within an inch of its life...fabric has been febreezed....anything disinfectable has been..well..you know.  What the heck is that smell?  You follow your nose.  Sometimes the smell seems to be in the living room other times the bedroom...so frustrating.  Finally you find it....it could be a tomato going bad on the kitchen counter....in my case....it was one bad potato in a whole brand new bag of potatoes that was stinking up the house.  What a relief.

    1. Hard to track down and sometimes hard to believe when you finally find it.

  2. I once had a bad smell that seemed to be following me around, on the bus, in a shop, again on the bus home. It was the sweat stained inner band of my cotton hat which was long overdue for a wash.

  4. One bad apple...er potato...spoils the batch. We had one person in our group last week who had awful BO. Don't know if he ever figured out why he couldn't get others to walk with him.

  5. LOL, been there, done that. Usually it's because we've caught a field mouse under the house looking to make a comfy home for the winter. Glad you found your stink. Too bad though, because if you hadn't I could have said "enjoy your stinking day."

  6. Once I was searching everywhere, the stench seemed to hang all over. We have a two sink bathroom and one of the sinks is seldom used, the water in the trap had evaporated and we had sewer gas coming up.

    1. That happens in the basement floor drain once in a while. I've taken to pouring a jug of water down once a week.

  8. Easier than a dead mouse under the counter, behind the kickboard.

  9. I hate that, when a smell that you can't identify suddenly appears, and hunting it down is endless.

  10. When there is a bad smell in the house, I always check the potato bin and 98% of the time, that is where the culprit usually is. The other 2% it’s the Retired Man.
