I was at my sisters house Saturday and it stink stank stunk.
She knew it. It was coming from the basement, but couldn’t find the source. In her need to expunge the smell, she decided tossing a handful of mothballs down the stairs would “help”.
Nope. When I walked into the house it was like walking into wall of mothballs with an underlying decaying smell.
My brother in law wouldn’t go down to find out what was causing the smell as he despises the smell of mothballs. Note: If he would have gone down there THURSDAY when my sister mentioned something was dead down there… but he had to hold down the Barcolounger.
Finally, last night braved the basement only to find out the chest freezer full of venison, cow, turkey… was dead.
The freezer is now in the garage, rotted meat in the trash. But the basement still reeks. How do they get rid of the stench? It’s a “normal” basement - poured concrete floors, brick walls.
