In response to Re: odor from two sinks
: Returning home after two weeks away, we noticed a foul odour...it smelled like a dirty, damp rag that has been left, unwashed in a corner. The odour came from the laundry and kitchen sinks, both on the same floor, but not from the toilet or bathroom sink on the same floor. I poured a good quantity of bleach down both sinks. Although the odour went away for a short time, it was soon back. It does seem to be slightly better if I am using the sinks and smells the worst after a period without use. What might be causing the odour and what can i do?

maybe the smell comes from the sewer.
see if you have a water trap under the sink.
water gets trapped at the bottom and makes an air seal.
it pevents the gas from the sewer from backing up into the house.
