Smell from Kitchen Sink

RY

I have a strong smell coming from kitchen sick that just won't go
away.........it smells quite strong.

I have removed the cap that screws on at the bottom and nothing there and I
have checked and cleaned trap, and yes there was scum there. I cleaned the
best I could , but still strong smell.

How do I fix this? where is it coming from?

The trap is the first place to check, but it may be water (and food residue)
that is hiding some other place. Under faucets etc. Mix some bleach and
water in a spray bottle and spray all round the sink, faucet handles, where
the sink meets the counter, etc. Be sure to check under the counter and in
the cabinet in case of a drip that you've not seen yet.

Do you have a garbage disposal or a dishwasher or both? Had the same
problem. I bought a product that you put on the bottom of the dishwasher and
run it through a cycle. That didn't help. Then bought a product from Bed,
Bath and Beyond. Can't remember the name but they'll direct you. Dropped
it in the disposal and followed the instructions. Afterward I poured some
bleach in the disposal, let it sit awhile then boiling water. Bye bye
smell.

When you say "checked", does that mean the trap was full of water when you
pulled it or removed cleanout nut?
I have checked and cleaned trap. I can check and cleaned clean out nut area.
I have used javex.
Still wicked smell.
The smell is coming directly from drain hole and no where else. If i plug
the sink, no smell.

I'm lost!
