"Tony Bennett"But as we saw above, the idea that the McCanns were able to find time for gardening seems unlikely, as of course was the necessity for Dr Kate McCann to wash the holiday curtains. What other holidaymakers need to wash their holiday curtains?

So it's true then? She really did wash the curtains? Houseproud or what? As you say, who on earth goes on holiday and feels compelled to wash the curtains?

Pity she didn't lift the floor tiles and clean under there smug

Please can you post the whole article in the reference section TB?

mmmm...... very suss indeed! Okay, for me, personally I see this........... if it was the smell of rotting meat or nappies that had 'been' (past tense), the smell would diminish as soon as the item was removed. The only reason it would linger would be if either the meat or the dirty nappy had seeped into the car seat/boot, etc. and had not been washed. If there was a bad smell from either of these items, any sane person would just take a big cloth and a bucket of water and bleach, douse the offending area of the car in the cleaning fluid and the smell would be gone. I know that nappies can smell but the minute they are gone/cleaned, the smell vanishes! Same with a bin which has meat in it a few days, may stink to high heaven and seep onto the floor but soon as you remove/clean it, the smell goes! So, if they did indeed do this, surely they wouldn't have had to leave the car boot open continuously to air it for days on end ? Especially in that heat, after being cleaned would have dried pretty quickly, the smell 'surely' would have left? Or....am I being totally illogical here????????

The smell in the Boot

Post by littlepixie on Sun 15 May 2011 - 23:21

When a body decays with the stomach/intestine contents intact, it smells far worse than a piece of steak which is just a piece of muscle that has had all offending "bits" removed.
The smell of decaying rodents caused one tenant I know of to ring the enviromental health for advice as she kept vomiting and she asked the landlord to be re-housed as she couldn't stand it.

I agree that whatever was carried in the boot of the Renault seeped into and under the carpets or coverings in the boot. Eddie said it did, Keela the blood dog found it, lets hope if/when the samples are re-tested we will get the proof of what it was.

Eta. There are some bits of a car boot that have carpet actually stuck onto the metal so to speak, so that would be very hard to clean in-situ.

the smell in the boot of the McCann's hire car

"It just occurred to me that do we know for certain that the McCann twins were still in nappies?

The nappies are one of the explanations put forward for the smell in the boot, which required the boot to be left open overnight.

they were two years and three months old when their sister vanished. Now the age at which children are potty/toilet trained varies. Some parents push potty training to speed up the end of nappies which are expensive, particularly when you have twins. Other parents are more laidback about it letting the child decide when to give up nappies.

Now the McCanns seem very money minded. They would not pay the Mark warner evening babysitting service charges -though Kate has said their non use of the service was 'not about money'. So could she have encouraged the twins potty training and they were not in nappies at that time"?

Pauline, that is a very important point. I seem to remember reading in one of Gerry's statements about him taking Sean off to the toilets. Now whether that was to change his nappy, or take him to the toilet, it needs looking into. As it might help to find out if they were still in nappies in June 2007.

My daughter potty trained her daughter around that age and it only took a week, but she was still in nappies at night.

I still cannot understand why on earth you would be transporting dirty nappies anyway, bizarre!

Only if you were taken them to the nearest rubbish dump? And the nearest rubbish skip wasn't within walking distance?

I thought they had cleaners? Don't they empty bins? Why the need to take anything to the dump? They were only there a week before the tragedy happened so why the need to also take rotting meat to the dump when they ate at the tapas bar every night?

The smell in the boot

Post by Guest on Mon 16 May 2011 - 14:28

I imagine that the holiday resort would supply disposal facilities for nappies which makes journeys elsewhere for this purpose seem unlikely. However I do think it is possible that, when travelling from place to place, there would be times en route when nappies would be put in car boots for later disposal.

Hello all...... this incident did not happen at the Ocean Club, it happened in the villa they rented after they left the O.C., they rented the Renault Scenic around 3-4 weeks after Madeleine disappeared.
