Question Bad Dry Wall Mud

I patched a small hole using some dry wall mud that smelled bad. After it dried it seemed OK. Now I'm concerned about long lasting problems. Am I ok to paint or should I start over? What kinds of problems can occur if I continue? Thanks for any advice.

Smelly drywall mud

Not to worry! If it looks fine and the surface appears the way you desire and it is dry. Proceed with priming and painting.

Thanks Twelvepole, I didn't want to have some kind of strange organism growing inside my wall . It's better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for the help.

Organisms in your walls? Perhaps worms. You could use them for bait.

Where do you fish and for what? I have not been fishing in years. My lines are dry rotted. I either caught the most or the biggest. My dad took me fishing when I was a kid. I always hung out with guys who went fishing in college.

I haven't had my waders on in 5 years. They hang on the coat tree at my mountain cabin on a river in a national forest.

From Drywall to Fish in a single bound

Hhey, so I'm a little paraniod. Like I said it's better to be safe than sorry, right?
Anyway, I'm a fly fisherman who mostly fishes for Trout. You really should get the waders out of storage and go fishing. It's good for the soul. Thanks again

Good luck, Fishin Buddy! I've been thinking about restringing my lines.
