k2bdeutmeyer Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 UGH.....so, I asked DH to take the garbage out before work this morning, because when I tried to do it, it made me gag. He agreed....and did it as I asked. When I got up this morning (he leaves before anyone else is up) the house smelled HORRIBLE. I assumed it was the empty garbage can. I immediately sprayed it down with cleaner and filled it with hot water to soak. I sat down on the couch and the smell was still so, so, SO strong. I wander the house and realize that the bag must've been leaking a FOUL, FOUL substance and DH set it down several times on his way to the back door to take it out. Now, he has a spinal cord injury and I know he must've been losing his balance with that VERY full bag, but maybe take the whole can then and transfer outside?? Ugh, I guess that's water under the bridge at this point. So, there is clearly a large spot of "garbage juice" on my carpet by the back door. The smell is permeating the entire house. I know there must be several more that are NOT visible between the kitchen and the doorway. I go back to start cleaning up the large spot and promptly vomit (count that as my first vomit of the pregnancy - lovely). So, now, here I sit. Wondering. How in the world do I clean up this spot? It is LARGE and absolutely VILE. And....how do I clean up the spots I can't see? I have no idea where they are. I might vomit again just thinking about it. I don't know where to even start. Times like this, I so wish we had a carpet shampooer (is that a word?). I don't even know anybody who has one (who's coming over??). Can I just move out? And, as a side note....to top it all off, I threw up about 30 min after taking my B6 and Unisom (my saving grace the last week or two), so I have no idea if I even have it in my system. Please save a poor, sick, pregnant woman from this vile smell. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
