Help! Awful Smell

93 replies

There's a really awful smell in our bedroom, which I can only smell when I am lying down in bed...

It sort of smells like rotting flesh / used tampon / sanitary pad but I cannot find anything...

Making me ill (and crazy) does anyone have any ideas please to what it may be?

I am also glad it wasn't something dead. I really wasn't sure how to go about checking behind the chimney cavity or walls!!

No, he has a deadline - it is fast approaching. The packing has started...

He has a place to rent from a couple of weeks time and I am really hoping he moves in from the start date rather than a couple of weeks after.

Move the bed and then lay on the floor if u can smell it still , it;s got to be under your floor boards. And if it is a dead rat the smell will go away in a couple of weeks.

I never thought I’d be pleased to say I’m glad it was only a rotten takeaway and a bit of piss. Nasty but fixable.

Dead mouse x

copperoliver · 19/10/2020 22:03

Could it be something wrong with the mattress. X

copperoliver · 19/10/2020 22:06

I read somewhere once a woman had put prawns in her partners curtain poles when he asked her to leave. Maybe he's done something like this to you. X

Oh dear, all the posters who didn't RTFT.

OP had found the source and has removed it from the room, the room now smells better.
