Getting rid of odors in Lock N Lock

Started 1357524203.61 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1357658514.367 by RedTop

I used a large Lock N Lock to mix a homemade fabric softener concoction and the scent remains rather strong in the container. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the scent? I have not tried to use it for anything else. I do not know if the scent would have a flavor transfer of some kind to other food.

Sometimes paper towels soaked in white vinegar, wrinkled up and stuffed in the container, are good for removing scent.

And sometimes newspaper wrinkled up and put in containers will absorb the scent.

Sometimes coffee grounds will absorb scent.

Sometimes charcoal works.

Just offering some of the tricks I've used, but I've never tried to get rid of a fabric

softener scent.

And, when all else fails, there's always baking soda and a little water. Smile

All I can think of is a baking soda paste. Other than that you may just have to use it for non-food items. Good luck.

Try some Dawn and water soak. I have also used a little bleach and water.

Fill the container with water and a generous amount of white vinegar. Let this sit for several hours then rinse. The vinegar will neutralize the odor in the container. A solution of bleach and water will do the same, but I would try the vinegar solution first since this will be used as a food container.
