    How to get the plastic smell out of squonk bottles

    Hey guys. I want to use my crappy dripbox 160 as a daily beater but the bottles and even the little plastic tip that the bottles slot on to reek of rubber. What is the best way to fix this ? If i cant then screw it im just buying a coppervape and throwing the dripbox at a wall

    Sounds like a good application of the Vodka soak...

    If alcohol doesn't get rid of the smell, I'm not sure what would. I take it you've already tried soap and water...

    A quick dip in boiling water would be my suggestion.

    My two are exactly the same out of the box.

    I've tried to get rid of the taste/smell with no success and I've tried just about everything that walks the face of the planet.

    I used a bowl of PG and soaked all my plastic parts. Seems to do the trick.

    White vinegar, not with metal bits though. Rinse in hot water

    Steradent has all these in one tablet, just dissolve in water and sink the bottle in the solution.

    You can also try using a mouth wash and soaking the plastic parts in that. I think XX brought this up to get rid of the smell in squonk panels etc for the VT. But don't use the cheap mouth wash I think.

    Added bonus. Contains alcohol too!
