Musty odor from drains

A strong musty odor is coming from the kitchen sink and master bathroom tub. Not from the other bathroom at all or the master bath sink. I have flushed baking soda and salt followed by boiling water to clean the help. I pour lemon juice and everything I can think of down these drains and still soon afterwards I smell the musty odor. What is this?????

Most likely smelly algae build-up.
Do a Search above for Algae and see a similar 5-29-03 post and how to resolve it with an enzyme-based drain cleaner.
Good Luck!

Thanks Mike. I found it. Strange how the smell only radiates from the kitchen sink and one bathtub. I will try the remedy. Hope it works!!
