SOS cleaning

As I mentioned in a different thread I had 45 pounds of fish go back in the fridge, it's also leaked the fish blood all over the kitchen. We've cleaned everything, but the kitchen smells as if something died in it. What can I do? It is the most repulsive, horible and digusting smell I've ever smelled. We did the obvious; burn the smelly candle, sprayed air freshener. What else can we do?

Wash down with Clorox solution following dilution instructions on Clorox bottle. After rinsing and drying you may want to scour area with baking soda paste.

Charley,

Try this solution. It will clean disinfect and deodorize. Safe to use on wood cabinets, tiles, floors. Test an inconspicuous spot. You might have to reapply.

Use a large bucket and premix the cleaning solution. If you have a 2 gallon fabric softener container, would be even better.You'll need a spray bottle. I make up this solution and keep it stored for later use. Just fill the spray bottle and go :)

1 Cup Borax ( 20 mule team )
1 Cup ammonia, do not mix ammonia and bleach together.

Add the cleaners to the bucket. Then add 2 gallons of water. Mix it well. Shake the jug well before refilling the bottles. If you need to clean area carpets, add 1 cup of fabric softener to the solution. Carpets smell great after wards.

Good luck.

Munky.

Thank you. I washed everything with Clorax, per above. But like i said, I think the blood got under the cabinets in the kitchen and/or also maybe it is inside the refrigerator. You know som of them have those pans inside for spills. It is absolutelly horible. My wife should have killed me, i sure deserve it. she told me toleave it in the freezer, but I was going to cook it, but because I was in so much pain after falling down, I completely forgot about it.

Not good, I was able to pull fridge out and get in the back of it, but it was clean there. I can only assume that I was right the blood did get under cabinets and slowly is degradating there. Question is how long before it is completely dried out and stop stinking. It is pretty bad still now.
