Do not use potpourri. Use fresh wave gel, baking soda and. Preventative, clean out with clorox wipes, put in the fresh wave and baking soda. Keep the door ajar when storing. If you have not found a critter or drain issue, this will take out your smell. Keep baking soda in your frig at all times. Change monthly. We had a bambi and thecspace is crowded. You may want to off liad some items into a Yeti so you have better circoin your frig. I have been OCD on this method of cleaning and storage. Worked well for me. Fresh wave can be found a Bed Bath Beyond and Ace Hardware. I use freshwave in the closets in the units. Also at home. Teally works

We had a small mouse accidentally smushed by a panel in the rear of our car during a campling trip and it was horrible. We'd known he was in there, we could find evidence of nibbling. Two brazen boys took everything out, flipped up the panel, checked everywhere, annouced they'd shooed him away. Apparently they nailed him when they flipped the panel back down.

Car started to smell a bit funky, but traveling with teenage boys and camping that was sort of the norm. Then a bit stronger but we were headed home and thought it was just all the dirty stuff in the back end. Once we got home, got everything out and cleaned the car it just got worse and worse...eventually we found the poor thing (now fondly referred to as "der flatsy mouse") and scraped him up. Took several months of airing and cleaning until we weren't constantly reminded of our summer vacation.

Charcoal can usually do the trick. Not ones that have fuel in them.

Give the fridge a good wash down with dish detergent and bleach. Pour some full strength bleach into the darin at the back of the frige. It gets clooged with debris and greoth because it is always wet and in a warm place on its way to the drain point outside. You may have something in the insulation in the door. Might need a trip to the dealer for a look.

Point made above

Definitely have to prop door open when in storage and fridge is off. There are small tabs available that tuck into the fridge catch to hold the door open a crack to let air circulate. Also you need to completely dry the fridge and freezer before storage. Good time then to wipe it down with mild bleach solution.

Former spouse left a full bag of Costco broccoli Florentine in our Volvo when we had it shipped from Phoenix to Portland and stored for 3 weeks. It was most rank. Air, ozium, and time did the trick.

Check to make sure all your stove burner dials are in the Off position versus any other position with no flame burning. In a position other than off with no flame evident, propane may be leaking, hence the smell. This just happened to me the other day. Id turned the dial to LOW versus OFF. Smelled like rotten greens all day before I finally noticed.
