    Find the source of the odor, if you cant see where it could possibly be coming from call the plumber. If its a rental, the owner should take care of as it is considered to be a " health and safety " issue. Best of luck !

    What kind of odor? Mold odor? Rotten odor? Dead varmint odor?

    The faucet was leaking. and it was wet under the counter. I got the leak fixed and it is as dry as can be. However, it smelled the same before the leak as it does now. I think it might be a combination of mold and wet wood.

    If the leak is fixed, try something like Damp Rid I used that after leak in my bathroom, and it really helped.

    I mix baking soda in a box of kitty litter to neutralize and trap odors. Leave it for a couple of days and remove.

    You may need to remove and replace any damaged wood. There may be mold under the kickspace of the cabinet. a 50/50 mix of bleach and water cleans mold. A 50/50 mix of vinegar and water will kill mold spores. Drywall and insulation in the wall may have mold growth.
