Out of the Blue

There was a bad smell in the kitchen that took a couple of days of sniffing around before it was traced to an aging bag of potatoes in a cabinet that had ceased being food anymore. Emptying the cabinet and airing it out for a couple of days with bowl of baking soda inside may have helped some, but it's still unpleasantly stinky, so I'm looking to accelerate the process by investigating other suggestions for ways to absorb the stench. Of course one of the suggestions is that this can be accomplished using potatoes. Maybe I'll ignore the potential irony here and try that... it's like the old saying, set a thief to catch a thief.

A few years ago, I made a huge grocery run in the dead of winter. I thought I'd gotten all of the food, but I had overlooked the huge bag of potatoes of the back seat floorboard. I will credit the below zero weather for my laziness in being not terribly thorough in checking the car.

Being utterly frozen, the potatoes didn't produce any smell when I was driving around town. Come the spring thaw, and I ended being sick for a few weeks and didn't drive.

So... one day I finally felt week enough to drive, got in the car, and my nose instantly discovered the potatoes that had been frozen for nearly a month and then in a hot-ass car for nearly a month (or was a late freeze and early heart wave). My God, you've rarely smelled anything that bad!

They had started fermenting. I called the cat a "vodkamobile" during the two week period that it took to air out!
