For anyone who missed this thread, I was having trouble with the plastic smell and taste coming out of my water bottle, and it was interfering with staying hydrated. I asked for suggestions on this board. Believe it or not, the first suggestion I tried seems to have solved the problem. Kudos to "coonass" for this solution -- here's a repeat for anyone who missed it:

"Fill bottle about 3/4 corn vinegar (the 'clear'one) and 1/4 water. Let sit for 24 hours....pour it out and rinse 2 or 3 times with clean water....there will NOT be any smell or taste.....just like drinking from a glass! HAS NEVER FAILED!"

Many thanks! This is a great board!
I also tried this per "coonass's" instructionsJim Burton
