milton or denture tablets

A good scoop of bicarbonate of soda and top up with boiling water. Leave overnight and rinse.

Bicarb would work if you have some. Milton will sterilze it but there's nothing in it to help remove smells. Bicarb will neutralise the nasty niff.

ok will go for the bicarb then and maybe use milton after then to sterilise it. thanks.

I use denture tabs in mine, always takes away the smell.

I'm assuming you've made sure you've scrubbed/wiped the inside down including in any corners? I find a bottle brush good for getting into crevices.
