Removing Smell From New Water Bottle

I just bought 2 new water bottles that are LDPE #4 and they have a awful smell. I have washed them in warm water and soap. I have cleaned them with water and baking soda. I also filled them with vinegar and water and let them sit over night, but they still smell. Does anyone have any solutions that have worked for them?
Thank you in advance for solutions.

Boiling hot water usually does the trick.

This didn't work either, anyone else?

LOL, does it really bother you that much?

The last bottle I bought had that smell, and it was gone by the end of the week.

Must be it does.

I'd just leave the bottle open and uncovered to let the smell out, it usually doesn't last too long.

Try mixing mixing mouthwash with water and let it sit overnight.

Put the bottle outside for 2-3 days with water in it.

Try a 2:1 ratio of water to rubbing alcohol, leave it overnight.

Man, all these different home-brew solutions are going to cost you more than the bottle itself.
