If it won't wash out I found that rinsing with peroxide does the trick for me. Use the plain peroxide you buy at the drug store. YMMV.

do you use straight peroxide or do you make a solution with water?

I just dump a $1.79 quart bottle in straight, slosh it around and let it set for a bit. You'll know when it works because the smell will be gone, then just pour it out and rinse.
