I originally thought it was water related, but I switched from filtered hose water back to water from my fridge and the problem did not go away. I suppose it could be chloramines in the local water...

I don't think it did. But I wanted to eliminate that as a potential cause anyway. I suppose the inside could have been filthy even though I try to keep it as clean as possible. There's no telling...
