How to remove smell from a new water bottle?

  • The new bottle has got a weird smell. I kept the bottle without lid from some time but that didn't help much.

    It is a plastic bottle. I washed it with plain water.

    What is a quick solution to remove odor from a freshly purchased bottle?

    What is the bottle made out of? Have you tried anything else, like washing the bottle?

    @Alex have edited the question. Perhaps I should wash it with soap first.

    Wash it with hot soapy water then leave to drip dry. If, when dry, the smell remains then fill with water and put in the fridge for 24+ hours. This should remove the smell. Always make sure when not in use that the lid stays off. Keep the bottle somewhere cool and dry when not using and without the lid on. Hope this helps

    @M_Griffiths Why didn't you post that as an answer? It sounds like it could work. If you post it as an answer we can test it and vote it up, if it works.

    @Alex I have done so now.

    Please post a separate answer for each method. (e.g., move the lemon juice freeze method to a new answer) This helps the community show which answers are the best, making the question more helpful for the future. Thanks!
