Fish Smell on a Tile Floor

A freezer door was left open and liquid from frozen fish leaked on the ceramic tile floor and now a horrible smell exists. I have tried to clean with pine sol, no help.

KILL need bleach OR ammonia . . . NOT BOTH!!!! I recommend bleach. Pine Sol is not even close to strong enough. If you don't want to be quite so aggressive to start out - try to let vinegar soak on it for a while.

You might want to try Odoban. You can buy a gallon of concentrated for about $10 at Sam's Club. It lasts forever! I've gotten rid of all kinds of obnoxious animal smells from carpte, tile, concrete, etc. Hospitals and vet clinics use it, too!

Try covering the spot with fresh coffee grounds (from the can) Cover these with plastic wrap or something and let set for a few days. I had an old cat pee on our livingroom floor which is well worn and used this method and it took out all the smell. May take a while but inexpensive.
