I'm not sure where I should post this, so I'm c&p to the recipe section too, since there's household threads there. Within the next week, we're supposed to be signing papers for the new house. I don't have the move in date yet, but since it's being sold 'as is' it needs a serious cleaning before we move anything over there. It's a farmhouse on 3.25 acres and the previous owners quite literally bred pittbulls and let them run amuk on the first floor. The kitchen's been tore out, it was so trashed. The dining room and bonus room are tile. The living room is carpeted (which I'm sure might have to be ripped out), the kitchen gutted to the bones so cleaning and subflooring again will be easy. My question is, the place smells like a kennel downstairs. What would you recommend to get the smell out and disinfect it? I've been told that baking soda, vinegar and bleach solution will work magic on it. I'm not sure. Any ideas are welcome Thanks so much!
