What's that smell? Rotten cauliflower!



I was cleaning out our fridge and found a Tupperware container pushed to the back. I opened it and, gross, it was rotten cauliflower! Hindsight being 20/20, I should have just tossed the container

Instead I dumped the cauliflower into the disposal and put the Tupperware in the dishwasher. I've run the disposal with ice and baking soda in it and it still smells like death. I ran the dishwasher and now the entire dishwasher, and everything plastic in it, smells like death.

Any ideas? I've got a candle burning in the kitchen but it still smells in there.

I'm sorry, but smells like death made me lol.

Maybe vinegar?

Fry some catfish, that'll mask any smell.

Baking soda and vinegar. Let it all bubble like crazy in there. I would throw the plastics out.

Get rid of the plastic containers. Cut up a lemon (or 5 ) and grind it through the disposal.

Empty the dishwasher, dump a bottle of vinegar in the bottom and run a cycle empty.

That should get rid of the smell.

It's okay to laugh over the death smell.

This is how it went last night (DH was in the living room and I was in the kitchen):

DH: "What's that smell?"

Me: "What smell?"

DH: "It smells like something died. Is there a carcass in the backyard?"

Me: "A carcass? How would a carcass get into our backyard?"

DH: "I don't know. Maybe the dogs caught something."

Me: "I don't know. I'm not going out to check."

DH: "Ok, that's really bad. What died? It's in the house."

Me: (At this point I couldn't stand being in the kitchen so I went in the living room and had to fess up.) "It's rotten cauliflower."

It just got even more funny after that. DH was pulling his shirt up over his nose, I was gagging, the kids were complaining, the dogs were liking the smell ...

I appreciate the tips. No offense but I think I'll skip the catfish tip. I'd have to post how to get rid of catfish smell after that.

I'll be heading out to the store soon for vinegar and lemons and more baking soda.

Why don't you serve cauliflower for dinner tonight? You need to replace it, just like I replace the cantaloupe that gets bad in the fruit drawer every couple of weeks or so.

We wouldn't have gotten that far. As soon as I cracked that baby open, I'da be gaggin' all over the place.

I don't do smells well at all. I really, really try not to do science fair experemints in the fridge. And if I do, I make DH or one of the kids check out the outcome of food forgotten in the far reaches of the fridge.

I knew as soon as I saw the title that you had opened a container from the fridge. I Never store broccoli or cauliflower.

When I've had a smelly problem (rotten potatoes ) with the DW and disposal I've run them both with bleach. Really seems to take care of the problem. The whole house reeks of bleach after but it's better than the rotten smell.
