For the past few weeks we've been trying to solve a little mystery around here. The Mystery of the Smelly Kitchen Sink.
It made it's grand entrance just before Christmas. Lovely!
With no obvious signs presenting themselves, we tried a search which led us to a You Tube video of a lady cleaning the gunk from her drains using baking soda and vinegar. With plenty of both ingredients on hand, it seemed a good place to start.
Following along I poured both ingredients down the drains and went to bed with high hopes of a fresher smelling kitchen in the morning.
After the final step of pouring boiling water down the drains in the morning, we thought just maybe the air was clear.
As the days went by the stench returned.
So, tonight I've taken every single thing out from under the sink sniffing as I go. Nothing offensive there.
Next up will be scrubbing the living daylights out of everything under there.
Another search suggested dumping lots of ice and water down the garbage disposal and running it. Did that.
They also suggested tightening various connections on all of those pipes. They all seem tight to me.
But that smell is still lingering and making me crazy!!
As I sit here at the kitchen desk trying to quietly read blogs it is wafting around me. So, you'll have to excuse me while I go do battle with the whole mess.
Comments and suggestions welcome.
The next bit of advice I read online dealt with unscrewing pipes and cleaning out gunk. Ugh!! Sounds like a job better suited for Brett.
Just keeping it real here tonight ;D.
