I'm making some jam and marmalade at the moment and have had some people save their old jars for me, but some of them have had pickled onions in them and i just can't get rid of the smell! Does anyone have any tips for me? I will be very grateful.
Try scrubbing them out with a paste of baking soda.
Fill with 1/4 white vinegar and 3/4 cold water. Let soak for a few hours or overnight if possible. This works for odors in plastic containers-maybe it will work for glass too! Good Luck!
I keep a lot of glass jars, but sometimes end up throwing them away because I can never get the smell of whatever was in the jar out of the lid. Does anyone have a good cleaner to get the smell out?
Plastic absorbs the smells and sometimes the taste. If soaking them in vinegar doesn't work, you may have to get different lids.
