How to de-odorize some rank ass shit smell

I done goofed. I have a Dyson vaccuum cleaner and i used it as a wet vac... then I didn't clean out the canister... 3 months later(sigh) i made a new life form... It resembles shit and smells like curry in a diaper.

So I soaked the entire canister and cyclone unit in ammonia for like 2 weeks, stuck a hose in hit and soaked it for another 2 weeks and it still smells like shit. Like gagging puke inducing smell.

The parts are made of plastic. Any idea on how to clean and deodorize this fucker? Thanks in advance.

Soak parts in white vinegar, baking soda, and hot water solution for a couple days, you probably wont need more than a spoonful or two of the baking soda.

baking soda neutralizes odors

i used it in the kitchen after an oven fire smoked the whole place
i used it in the car after my cloth seats were soaked in hot chocolate

i keep a container of it in the car now instead of air fresheners

supposedly Vinegar, Baking Soda, Warm Water will deoderize plastic



here's a page suggesting several more materials to do so
http://www.ehow.com/how_4514520_deod...ontainers.html




plastic stains/soaks up shit, so even with those cleaning agents, if you've let it ferment for awhile it'll probably be tough to clean out

i thought i remember reading somewhere about first washing the plastic with a solution of vinegar and lemon juice. dry it off then put it in the freezer for a week. (hopefully it will fit). Something about the cold neutralizing the odor.
cant remember where i heard this though.

sometimes if ammonia doesnt get it out, bleach will. I did the same thing with a tupperware once, soaked in bleach, then soaked in ammonia. then soaked in baking soda. it ended up looking/smelling fine.

What worked, scrubbed it with mr. clean and then saturated the whole unit with baking soda, then warm soak for 15 min and a final scrub.

I had the same problem with our dyson. Soaking fulling Bleach for the cannister and cyclone worked. While rinsing out the filter with vinegar or baking soda did the job.

All my ideas have already been posted by others, so hopefully one of them work.

Just as a reminder if some don't know... Do NOT mix bleach and ammonia!

Should be an automatic, but there's always a chance someone doesn't know...
