Halibut Leaked in Our Freezer

Halibut leaked in our freezer. The whole fridge stinks after a week and three washings? Any ideas?

A couple of big boxes of baking soda, one for the freezer, and one for the fridge. Maybe you should change all your storage containers, and rewrap your frozen food. Plastic absorbs odors sometimes. We always used to wash out the fridge with baking soda water, anyway. It may take several boxes of baking soda over several weeks (months?) and quite a few washings to get things back to normal. Maybe leave an open pitcher of water in the fridge, and change it every day. That should help a tiny bit, and it's cheap and almost effortless.(You know how things get that "refrigerator taste" when left open.)

Try washing it out with vinegar .. it should kill any odors and once it dries it won't smell like vinegar, I promise! The baking soda will help too!

Good Luck!

Bleach will kill the odor. Just depends if you are emptying everythig out to clean the freezer.

If you are a coffee drinker this will work. Take a used filter and coffee grounds, place on plate and leave in freezer overnite. This worked well when a visitor left a bag of bait shrimp that leaked in our freezer. The grounds absorb the odor. You could follow up with a few drops of vanilla applied to a cotton ball and left in freezer for a really fresh smell.

Hope it works for you.
