My mother-in-law's part time neighbor called her to check their refrigerator as they forgot to empty it when they unplugged it when they left town the previous week. The smell was horrible, ground beef had been rotting for days in the summertime. I figured time for a new refrigerator as it must be in the insulation. She said "no problem" and placed an open dish of vanilla extract in it and closed it up. Amazingly a few days later, the odor was gone. Might be worth a try if you like vanilla.

The internet is a wonderful tool.

While looking for a way to get rid of the Febreze smell I read a message thread where the final line was, "How do you Febreze Febreze?"

Trust me, that is one product that will NEVER see the inside of my home or trailer again!

When this entire science experiment is done, I'll invite everyone over to smell my trailer. :-)

See a topic That New Smell. Jaci posted this. Maybe it will help.

"I worked for years in a pediatric intensive care, we would use fresh ground coffee beans set out in an open container to deodorize a room Use the amount you would use to make 2 large 12 cup pots of coffee. We had to be very careful with sprays and fragrances to avoid causing another patient to have severe respiratory problems due to asthma or allergies. It worked fairly quickly, usually less than 10 min, to deodorize the room without any harmful chemicals. You may need to set it out in the camper and leave it for a day or two."
Good luck

Didn't have time to really read this whole thread... But, have you used a Dehumidifier to get rid of all possible moisture? Actually dont know if that would help or not. I use one in my basement several times a year to get rid of any mustiness that we might smell. Works pretty good. Although Fabreze is pretty powerful stuff. Hey, it could be worse... Could be Dog Pooh, or Skunk, or .....................

Hi: All... I'm still trying to get past activating my charcoal. I usually squirt it with lighter fluid to get it started!!! Should I use a disposable aluminium pan on the floor ???
