Thanks for the sanity check folks!

So you burned a small pan of charcoal in them to kill the stank? That's fascinating, I wouldn't have thought of that.

Oh & First Wife? Not that it's any of my business but since you brought it up...How many do you have? :-). I'm still working on my first (& only) and I adore my wife but if God forbid something happened to us I don't think I could do this again. The training regimen has been a b!tch...Hahahaha

Probably unlit to filter out the 'aroma'?

You're doing it wrong.

Oh, and don't light the charcoal.

Guess the "to run" in reference to the charcoal made me think you were letting it smolder. Didn't seem safe but neither does bungee jumping and people do that s#!t all the time!

I suppose they do make charcoal filters to absorb odors for other applications so you just made your own. Tracking now...

No, not lit, just as a "filter medium".

And yes, the "First Wife" is the present one.

That's how I introduce her to people, "This is my First Wife......."

She doesn't like it when I add "Sugar Drawers" on the end of that, for some reason...........

Once you've cleaned out the bottom of a well-used keezer that hasn't seen sponge nor soap for a year, you get pretty numb to the nasties. There is some absurd amounts of evil that can grow in cold wet darkness. A wee bit of black mold wouldn't scare me in the slightest.

Our old fridge died a few years ago and I put it in the garage with good intentions but no motivation to fix it. Well about a year later I get into homebrewing and decided to fix the fridge. That thing was a nasty mold fest.

I hit it with bleach, peroxide and starsan and it has never been cleaner. love that fridge. Just give it a day or two to air out after cleaning before you plug it in. Still running great.

20% bleach and water in a spray bottle will have the mold disappearing right before your eyes.

This is also why I advocate refrigerators over freezers.
A fridge stays nice and dry, while a freezer gets wet moldy and nasty, worse with more humidity.
