What's that smell?

As I'm getting in the grove of everyday life, I'm struggling with a nasty smell that won't go away. I've scrubbed the floors, stuck my nose in all sorts of places it never wanted to be, and it still haunts me. Every time someone comes to visit, I ask them if it stinks, and if they can help me locate the smell. No one can help me. At first I thought I eradicated the smell by taking out the recycling, cleaning out the trash bins, and scrubbing the floor, but when I came inside this morning, the smell was back. Part of the problem is that I'm in the smell all day. And it's subtle enough, that I get used to it and don't smell it anymore. We are clean people, and the house is clean too. Yet it smells like we're living like pigs. It's not rotten potatoes, or Sterling's socks. It's not the trashcans or spill on the floor. I don't know what it is, and it's driving me crazy!

How awful! That would drive me crazy, too. I hope you find the source soon and can get rid of it.

We had that once and eventually found a dead mouse in a grocery sack under the sink. Yuck. Maybe a mouse in the wall? Good luck figuring it out!

I went to someone's house once and it smelled like cat pee but he had no cat. Turns out the previous owner had a cat and my friend had to remove the floors to get rid of the stench. I hope that's not the case for you. Good luck.
