  • I would put a small amount of water in it with a big squirt of dish soap. then put a bunch of baking's the container and shake it up. Then let it sit for several hours, overnight is best. That should do it. If it doesn't, set it outside for a few hours, the fresh air should get rid of the smell.

  • Baking Soda soaks up odors really well.

  • Let it set out for a few days. It needs to air out. If it's actual Tupperware brand, it'll take a while. If it's cheap stuff, toss it.

  • Baking soda or vinegar. You can take baking soda and water and make a paste. Vinegar is an odor "eater" too.
    If it is real tupperware, give it some time. If it is Rubbermaid - same thing give it sometime. If it is gladware or the cheap stuff....chunk it and get new.
