Odour neutralising

How can I neutralise the bad smell in a fridge/freezer?

It had been switched off accidentally during the heat-wave of the past few days and it had meat rotting in it. Rotting meat and blood make a heady concoction. xx( The stench was outrageous.

Now it's been cleaned out and disinfected but still the stench lingers.

Any ideas what substances could be put in the fridge (or applied to the inner walls) to get rid of the smell?

Not sure but aren't lemon juice, vinegar or bicarb normally considered to help remove odours. (Used separately I think).

Thanks.
Dumb question...Do you mean bicarb in solution and then wiped on the walls or powder in a container and left in the fridge?

I'm sure I've heard of microwaving a lemon that's been cut in half and then sticking it in the fridge while it's still hot. If it's that bad then maybe a couple or more are needed.

Why not try both; clean the walls with a solution and afterwards leave a tray of it in the bottom of the fridge.
 
Not quite as resourceful but I once had a stink in my fridge and to get rid of it I bought one of those little fridge gel deodorants that I've seen in most supermarkets.
