Hubby didn't know about the smell in our freezer. I didn't want to tell him. I'm his wife, and as such I feel it my duty to take care of the domestic things around here. Well I finally gave up, shoved his head in the freezer and made him inhale.
"That's just the ice maker and the old ice at the bottom." He quickly and mater-of-factly informed me.
All this time it's just been old ice? It makes sense. The smell was a musty one. We always have the ice maker on and we only use the ice at the top. We've never used the ice at the bottom; it's been sitting there for over a year.
I dumped out the container the ice was in and smelt it. Yep, that was the smell.
Man I felt so stupid. Thanks everyone for giving me your suggestions, I really appreciated that. I am glad that this mystery is solved and I can move on to another.
How is it that men can be so ignorant and clueless on most occasions but so very very smart on others?
