Skank Water Cure
Things leak; it's a scientific fact. As the ice melts the water gets diluted with various "juices." In a matter of hours, not to mention days, the odour can evoke memories of Lake Erie in the '70s. So I was pleased when an accidental discovery cured the problem.
I sometimes anoint fish with lemon and keep one on hand for blending with rum and/or gin. The cooler is usually full with meat (and beer) so I've always thrown it, the lemon, in with the other (expendable) veggies. I realize it doesn't compare to the work of Jonas Salk or Linus Pauling, but I'm confident Linus would've nodded with satisfaction.
No applause please, just send money.
P.S. After three weeks the lemon was looking a bit worse for wear. Last night (See my comment in prev blogpost about giving up.) I cut it up and it mixed quite well with the gin.
