Help! Why does my house smell like trash!?

Omg it's driving me nuts! I thought this morning it was because I threw away a package from chicken last night and forgot to take the trash out. So I took out the trash and rinsed the can then I checked the kitchen drains, I sniffed all around the kitchen but really only smell it in the living room so I moved the couch and looked under there nothing. What the hell I'm afraid something died under the house and the smell is coming through the floor because I've checked every possible place it's driving me nuts and hubs is out of town until Thursday.

I hope something didn't die under your house! That would be awful @.@ Maybe your house just needs to air out? Open all the windows and put a fan in one. (Bundle up like an eskimo if it's super cold outside!)

Nope I talked to hubs this afternoon and he said maybe something's in the vent for the heater :( my ass isn't getting up on the roof so it is going to have to wait until he gets home.

Check for rogue potatoes. I once found one that somehow made it inside the bottom cabinets and was rotting away. It drove me nuts for a week before I found it.

Could be a dead mouse.  We had one die under the cabinets and it smelled like a garbage dump in the kitchen for a couple of weeks.  I cleaned out the dishwasher and the disposal and it didn't help.  When we tore down the cabinets to redo the kitchen, we found the body.  Can you take the kickplates off of the bottom of the cabinets to see if you can find it?  Also pull the appliances out from the wall and look behind them too.
