In my old house, over/near the basement sink, there is a distinct,
odor of inner-tube air. It smells like there's old bicycle
tires jammed up inside the wall. :-)
There was a leak from the shower above this area years ago, which has
completely dried out now. It still concerns me, so I keep a small fan
blowing on this area. Also, there's a clothes dryer and main sewage drain
nearby, and the vent stack goes up inside the [outside] wall.

household, and I don\'t want it in your intellectual diet.".
