Freezer unplugged: removing smell

Somehow my freezer got unplugged.
Chicken, fish, pork, ice cream - of course it all defrosted.
Came home from work today and got blasted with the smell. First I knew of it.
Cleaned out the freezer but can't get the smell to go away.
Any suggestions?

Baking powder was an old trick. Start with that.

Sounds like a plan. Make a little paste with it and rub down the insides. Thanks!

Shorty, did you mean Baking Soda or have I been missing something? We have always used the soda.

My sons freezer lost power, we think it was the extension cord, and lost a lot of meat. he ended up disassembling the panel on the lid to clean everything he could get to. Turned out good but never resolved why.

Get several boxes of baking soda. Pour it into bowls and place inside on bottom of freezer. Close lid. It will take several days.

Some I know use coffee grinds to do the job.
