Cleaning Out Soap Bottles

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.

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.
