Odor remover

I was at our camper 2 weeks ago, and somehow the freezer was left cracked open. Had 3 bags of fish fillets in there, and now the entire camper smells too high Heaven! Iíve got coffee grounds throughout the fridge and freezer, and in the carpet. Any other methods to rod the camper of this smell? TIA!

Oh man...makes me cringe just reading it.

Two methods I've heard of - First - mix Baking Soda and water in a slow-cooker. Leave it running on low overnight (uncovered) - IF YOU HAVE ELECTRICITY at your storage facility.

Another method - Simmer either vinegar or lemon peels in water on your stove for 20 minutes or so to neutralize the surrounding air, sort of like a natural potpourri.

No guarantees, but perhaps a small improvement, then repeated might help.

We kept our freezer in the garage. Oldest son unplugged the freezer when his band was practicing. When found it was a smelly mess. We had to keep an open bag of charcoal in the freezer from then on. If we did not the smell returned.

An ozone generator will get rid of the smell, even works for cigarettes. However, you must follow the directions to use it safely. It's what the pros use. First saw one used on a cruise ship, and I was convinced.

some good points already made...
won't hurt to wipe down walls and hard surfaced items with your favorite cleaner
run the A/C for a while..
open windows and use some fans to push air out.

serve Taco's and re-fried beans for the next meal...

Thanks for the suggestions. Brought linens, clothes, and towels all home to wash. One blanket wonít come clean from smell. Amazing how that smell permeates everything! I have an ozone machine blasting for the week until I can get there next weekend. Hope that works!
