Q: I have a fairly new refrigerator that came with a house I bought. There was a terrible smell from rotten food, or whatever was in there. I have gotten most of the smell out with vinegar, and baking soda, and lemons, all with a few different combinations. Its been cleaned through and through:But there is still a pretty bad smell towards the bottom. Does anyone know of any hard-core way to try to get this last lingering smell out? Or should I chuck the (otherwise good) refrigerator?
