Fish smell in truck

Question

LovenLifeGuy

Over the 4th of July I had my wife pick me up some crappie minnows while up north. she put the bag of minnows on the passenger seat and she said the rubber band poped off and they went everywhere. I removed all the minows I could find but it still smells. Anyone know how to get rid of the stink?

I feel like a grumpy old man frown.gif

Thanks, LovenLifeGuy

pure, fresh, lemon juice. Not concentrate. I bet you could cut one in half and scrub with the cut side.

I would try the skunk off recipe. Hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, dish soap. Do a search you should be able to find it. If it works on skunk scent it will work on anything.

Well I work in the trucking industry. If we go to pick up a load and the trailer stinks from hauling a load of fish or what ever what we use is coffee grounds works every time pour them in the trailer let them sit and sweep them out later. You could try it. Works in trailers

Your vehicle will smell like a pantry by the time your done removing all the smell. Try using the commercial carpet deoderizer. Worked in my boat to remove the fish smell.

You could try charcoal. Just put a half dozen pieces in a jar and punch some holes in the lid. Leave it in there for a few days. I did this with a refrigerator that we forgot a pound of hamburger in once. The smell was gone in 2 or 3 days.

It had been sitting in there for a couple weeks up at the lake, and the power to the trailer was off. Nice surprise when we got back up there! shocked.gif

Maybe try baking soda on the seat and carpet to get it out of them.

Good Luck!

Coffee grounds are the best smell removal approach.If you use any soap,lemon juice,"wet"approach only seems to spread the spill out more.imo coffee is the best way.Spread it out on the spill and let it absorb the stanky for 24 hours or so.Hope this helps.c63 grin.gif

If the smell is on the seats, avoid lemon juice contact for too long as it is strong enough acid to damage the fabric if left on there long enough. Peroxide will bleach the seat if left on for too long as well. You could try a carwash that cleans interiors. My dad brought his Grand Marquis to a place, they cleaned the interior (made his leather seats look brand new) and exterior in about an hour for $50. Some place in St. Paul I could ask him where if you want.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
