  4. Try crumbling up newspapers and let them set in there overnight. It works in a freezer that has had rotten meat in it. Stuff it in there, not super tight, but fill up the spaces and see if that helps. I also have read where pure vanilla extract in an open lid type holder will also absorb a lot of bad odors.

    You could also try mixing baking soda and water and spraying it down, then leave the box in there overnight. Might work even better than the fish!

    i didn't... i tried to teach my almost 8 yr. old to do it.

    there is a button that says, "popcorn"

    and i don't know what she pushed but it just went on and on until there was nothing left but a poof of smoke.
