I think this is my first anonymous post in Answers ever, but I'm so ashamed! My pantry floor is a wreck - we toss plastic bags in the bottom when the bag holder gets full. I didn't even realize there was a bag of potatoes in the bottom of the pantry.
I bought it several months ago and now that the weather's gotten hot the potatoes have...let's just say "decomposed" in a crime scene kind of way. The smell lead us to the bodies.
The worst part is that I have parquet tile in the kitchen (which is bad enough on it's own!) and the stinky "potato juices" (excuse me, I have to hurl now) have seeped under the tiles.
Without pulling up the floor (which I would love to do, but can't afford), is there anything I can do to remove the stench from UNDER the tiles?
I've sprayed straight vinegar on it for now and have walked away. Please help!

Ladies, thank you so much! I'm going to take it in order of extremity of the solution, starting with the vinegar followed by letting baking soda sit on it for several days to see what happens. Then I'll start pulling up tiles if that doesn't do the trick.
And, needless to say, I'm going low-carb and forbidding potatoes to enter my house for the foreseeable future!!!
