Hey guys,

Does anyone of you know how to get rid of the orange juice odors? I want to use it as a container for my metabisulfite solution.
I've tried to clean it with some pink chlor detergent but it still smell orange juice.

Any idea?

fill the jug 1/2 full with water, add about 1/4 baking soda, shake to mix, top off with water and let sit for a day. It should remove any odors/flavors.

OR

Fill it 1/8 or more of the way up with rubbing alcohol and throw in a few tablespoons of coarse salt. Give it a strong shaking for a few mins and it will be crystal clear. Once done, wash out with warm water. Plus, now you have it sanitized!

careful. iso alcohol is quite different from actual labled 'sanitizers', and requires concentrations above 60-70% and several minutes of contact time to be effective. and it still does not kill a considerable number of things, like spores, or some more resistant, or especially- dormant, virii/bacteria.
