I will have to be very honest with you and tell you that I am not sure about the number of installments there will be in The Saga of The Stinky Fridge.

Action Plan to attack the Invaders of Stink:
1) Wipe out the nastiness and breathe with my mouth as much as I can while listening to some happy music. I will listen to The Black Keys (Brothers CD if you care) on Spotify.

3) Examine and throw away anything that looks suspicious while waiting. (Note: There was a LOT of nasty stuff I found in the fridge and I will spare you from the grotesque photos)
4) Rinse the dishes out and load the dishwasher and pop in a pod of Melaleuca Diamond Brite Automatic Dishwasher Detergent.
