I've been struggling for a few days with the cleaning of a fridge that was left off for a few weeks with raw chiken meat in the freezer compartment. When I found it, the meat had turned liquid with the smell you'd expect, spread in the entire fridge. I started cleaning thoroughly with bleach with little effect and then vinegar after stumbling on this piece of advice. But there is still a noticeable smell lingering.
My question is then: Is it possible that the plastic of the fridge has absorbed the cadaverine and/or putrecine that I assume are responsible for the smell? And if so will any amount of vinegar (or some other household acid) be able to remove the remaining smell?
