Does anyone know how to remove the fragrance from the 2 gallon Tide, Era, and other bottles to reuse for water jugs? I have a dry water well at my barn and 3 horses that need drinking water this winter. Thought these bottles would be ideal for water transport. I've been collecting them from people's curbs all summer.
Try a mixture of vinegar and water and let it sit in the jugs over night and see if that gets rid of it.
I have never been able to get the fragrance out myself, so I use one GAL. milk jugs.
Baking soda mixed with water takes many odors out.
Try vinegar and baking soda and let it soak. Then rinse really well with hot water.
Some plastic bottles are not made for containing any type of food/beverages. In other words, they are not food grade safe. I would think detergent bottles would be one of them. I wouldn't want to take that chance of getting your horses sick.
Hi, I use vinegar for getting rid of smells the vinegar it's self smells but only for a lil while.
Hope that helps

Wash them out, then rinse with vinegar to get rid of odor and soap residue.
