    Shaker Cup Smell Won't Go Away


    This sucks. I have powder in the cup. I add water. That whey is in there for less than 3 minutes before I already drank it all and washed the thing out WITH SOAP. Then it sits in the fridge for a few hours, until I leave work and go home. The next day, it smells rank. Like I left the whey mixture in there overnight or something. But not every shaker cup. It's hit and miss. And some of the misses aren't even fixed with the dishwasher. Do I need to take further precautions than scrubbing the thing immediately afterward with soap and water?

    you need to rinse it out with hot water immediately after drinking it, dry it with a towel and then let it sit out. Do not under any circumstances put the cap back on and just let it sit.

    How to remove odors from plastic containers like tupperware:
    - Wash them with hot water and two or threetablespoons of baking soda. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.
    - Make sure that your plastic container is dry. Put crumpled newspaper, activated charcoal filters or loose activated charcoal in the plastic container. Close the plastic container. After days/weeks, some of the odor will be absorbed. Bofore you use it, rinse well with water.
    - Soak for a while in vinegar and water
    - Open the containers and put them in sunlight for a few days.
    - If your container is made of freezer-safe plastic, freeze your container for while.
    - If nothing helps, get used to the smell or buy stainless steel containers.

    Watch out: some people suggest filling with chlorine bleach for a few days. I do not recommend this as Chlorine bleach is toxic. If you use it, be carefull and rinse your containers well before using them again.

    This is going to sound weird but if you dissolve a couple denture tabs in warm water inside the cup and let it sit overnight it will be good as new. Then for future reference when you rinse it out leave the cap off or at least open.

    This may not have been the best footnote when you consider that it was not rinsing the cup well that got him in this 'pickle' in the first place

    Just use a shaker with a type of material that does not retain or absorb odors. Try stainless steel, or a type of plastic that does not absorb odors. Here is a link that has some that do not retain odors

    The hot water option is at a moot point right now, the smell is already here. Now he has nuke it, then once nuked, he can probably apply the hot water technique as everyday maintenance. An alternative would be to line it up on a ledge and use it as target practice. At least you won't have to worry about venting it, cause it will have so many holes in it now, lol.

    Since taste is affected in large part by smell, it really kills my appetite if the shaker cup smelled. Lots of good ideas; I would probably just try letting some boiling water sit in it, then go with the others. Good luck And if all else fails, http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/s...tle-28-oz.html

    Hahahah, in retrospect, it was a weak joke! hahhaha. But man, I'm having some happy OD going on here. First time ever, so I guess just pay no attention, cause the dumb jokes have been happening a lot lately. This happiness is like a new toy for me.

    For those of you who arent cleaning those shaker bottles very well, be warned!....You are creating a seriously dangerous situation of getting sick as HELL. It happened to me once before, and I guarantee you it will never happen again.

    But you keep some cash, saving on laxatives. Since my three day long experience. I rinse with hot, hot water and wipe it clean with paper towels. You can see the residue come out on the paper towels... but haven't had a problem since.
