Default Left food in frig how to get rid of smell?!?!

We made the mistake of leaving a carton of food in our frig last time we went out. We had quite a surprise. Does anyone know how to get rid of the smell we now have in our frig? Thank for any and all suggestions.

Scott

You can try getting a little dish and opening several boxes of baking soda, dumping them in the dish and closing the fridge w/ the power on and set at very cold.

You can make a mixture of this w/ water and just wipe the interior of the whole fridge w/ the damp cloth.

You can also try using some of the traditional cleaners, but then you end up with a chemically smelling fridge.

That's all I got!

Leave some newspaper in the fridge with door closed for a few days.

I've used newspaper in ice chests to get rid of fish or shrimp smells and it works pretty well. Just put folded newspaper in and shut the door, or crumple it up.

We forgot & left some meat in freezer when coach went to a repair shop in Las Cruces. Somehow the LP mode got turned off. Long story short, after 3 weeks smell was bad enough to knock a buzzard off a gut wagon. Almost had to replace fridge. We finally used the backing soda trick as well as crushing some charcoal briquets then rolling the charcoal powder in some cheap kitchen towels and put these in the compartments. It took some time, but finally got rid of the odor.
