Plastic? They can get tiny microscopic scratches that can harbor mold and mildew.  I would boil and if the still smell I would pitch and buy new.

If my plastics stink I bleach them then rinse well and wash with plenty of soap.
I don't know if bleaching bottles would be ok though.

Apple cider vinegar soak. I use 50/50 water to vinegar.

Ridiculous, i bought the one bottle a week ago. There's nothing I did that could have scratched it! Grr.

That sucks.  : ( 

have you considered glass? We don't use bottles but if we did I think I would at least try glass and see how it worked for us.

White vinegar. Don't wash them in the dishwasher. It always makes them gross for some reason
