    Do you have a garbage disposal? If so, put some ice cubes and orange segments, including peels, in there and run it.

    If not, get some water boiling, pour some baking soda down the drain, followed by lots of clear vinegar. Now pour the boiling water in there.

    all drain pipes are joined together so you need to find the source of the smell,, ie the bath room or laundry maybe kitchen,, then work from there ,, do you have a garbage disposal?? that is probably the cuase right there!! run the faucets for a couple of minutes after you unplug a drain,, this will wash out any remaining rsidues,,,

    You need to remove the p-trap and clean it out with some comet or ajax and an old toothbrush. do this in another sink.

    After you clean it run 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar down it once a month to keep it smelling clean. Let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes or so.

    Poor some Bleech down the dains of all your downspots, Run some water through. If you can still smell it after running water, mix pine soil and little water and pour some into each drain hole. This should do it.

    Put baking soda and vinegar down your drain and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes, then flush it with hot water.

    Good luck!

    Flush it with water for a couple of times, if this doesn’t work then try to use some vinegar, baking soda or lemon juice to get rid of the smell. All are best known for eliminating odors
