Hi again, Y'all.

Those of you who have read my previous posts know that I am a trucker and away from home for a minimum of 3 weeks @ a time. Those of you who haven't - well, I'm a trucker and away from home for at least 3 weeks @ a time and, more likely, 1 to 1.5 months at a time.

So, here's my problem: When I last left home, I didn't notice (I swear) the package of chicken and the package of thin sliced pork chops hiding in the back of my fridge. I cleaned out everything else (gave reasonable stuff to my neighbor and froze the rest).

And, I got home 1.5 mos. later, walked into my kitchen and said "What the hell is that smell!!!!!!" So I kicked myself in the butt, dumped the chicken and the pork, cleaned everything with soap, hot water and bicarb, and all seemed well.

The next day, I made myself a drinkie, (ice, vodka, peach tea), got half way thru it and about gagged. Ice tasted pretty much like the fridge smelled when I got home. I threw out the drink, dumped the ice maker, replaced the water filter, and voila, IT STILL SMELLS AND TASTES like it did when I got home.

ANY SUGGESTIONS?????? I cannot abide ice that tastes like rotten chicken. Don't know what to do!!! Please help.

Thanx, PAT
