LOL, I know..right?! Okay so the story here is I bought my kiddos and I plastic drinking bottles from Wally World for the summer. I thought it was a great idea: cheap yet semi durable, different colors thus quickly identifiable, reusable to suit my youngest 'earth friendly side' and cool looking to fit my macho cool guy! (I got mine 'cuz I am mom and thus practicality and my cheap side won out)
I really adore these bottles (and from Walmart yuck!) BUT!!! We have had them way longer than a month, have only drank water from them, and we refill them at least three times a day! They get washed with soap and hot water at the end of the day.
---And they still taste/smell like plastic.
What do I do to get rid of that smell and taste it is driving me mad!
Try vinegar + 2/3 water.
Or try Baking soda dissolved in water, baking soda absorbs smells naturally anyway.
Hydrogen Peroxide is another idea.
You can try bleach but I'd use it as a last resort.. and I'd look for special bleach suitable for baby bottles.
When trying any of these ideas, I'd let it sit for a while.. swish the solution around so it gets everywhere (inside the bottle lol.. not all over you). And then clean it out after a while.The plastic smell should leave on it's own but perhaps this will help you speed it up.
