Baking soda is known for unblocking drains when combined with vinegar, but this hack can also remove bad smells from drains too.
Cleanipedia recommends tipping a few tablespoons of baking soda into a drain with warm white vinegar and then running the hot water tap for a few minutes.

Clean up whatever you’ve spilt on the surface and then make a solution with baking soda and scrub them down gently.
This even works on carpets when they’ve been badly stained, the experts at Cleanipedia said.
