I am wanting to make a pencil holder out of a canned goods can. How can I get the smell of stewed tomatoes out?

Fill with water and a few spoonfuls of vinegar. Let soak a few hours.
After you clean it out with the vinegar, cut out a circle shape of it from a dryer sheet and glue it in, gives a great smell.
Baking soda is great but if you add white vinegar to it it will clean and deodorize it very quickly. Just don't forget to wash it out afterwards.
Thanks everyone! I'm new to making crafts and very excited about my new crafting hobbies!
I find that putting a good dose of baking soda (anywhere from a tablespoon for small container to 1/2 cup or more for a larger container) into any container, filling it up with water, shaking (or stirring) ... and leaving it for a day or two (repeat shake-up or stirring every few hours) does wonders at removing any odor (even plastic bottles).
