Rotten Meat Smell in a Room

My husband went outside to our big freezer the other day. It is in a room of the house that is not accessible from inside (thank goodness). He opened the door and was assaulted by the smell of rotten meat. The freezer had probably been standing open a week. We were able to get the smell out of the freezer with baking soda, newspaper, and charcoal. How do we get the smell out of a small cinderblock room? It is awful! I can smell it before I open the door and I have a cold. I have the door open attempting to air it out, but any suggestions would be great.

Use a mixture of household bleach and water, 1 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water, no need to rinse.
Spray or scrub down the wall and anything else with this. (01/30/2006)

Febreze will take care of it. It did on the spilled turkey mess in the car trunk of a friend. (01/30/2006)

What about painting the cinderblock (and even the floor if it is cement) with Kilz? It's supposed to take care of everything. Good luck! Keeping open vinegar containers seems like a good idea too. (01/30/2006)

Try throwing some fresh coffee grounds all around the room. For some reason, the coffee grounds eliminate the most potent odors. One time, a mouse died behind one of our walls near a vent. We could not get to the mouse but we did read once that throwing coffee grounds would take the terrible odor away. I'm happy to say that it worked very well!


It has to be fresh coffee grounds. Use very liberally. (01/30/2006)
