Making a Pencil Holder from a Can

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.

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).

Try putting it in the freezer for 2-3 days. I know it works for plastic items but haven't tried it on cans.
