How to clean a thermos from an unpleasant odor

In the cold winters of war, a thermos became one of the essentials. When choosing a thermos, you should pay attention to the vacuum, size, and stopper. The heat inside is retained due to the vacuum between the double wall, so the greater the distance between the walls, the better the thermos.

However, over time, the thermos may develop an unpleasant odor - this is inevitable with frequent use. OBOZ.UA figured out how to get rid of the odor without using soda.

A simple solution

Even regular washing cannot completely neutralize odors, especially if the thermos is made of metal materials.

Popular odor-neutralizing ingredients, such as baking soda and vinegar, are undesirable when cleaning a thermos. So a simple but very effective solution will come in handy. It's so familiar that you might doubt its effectiveness. However, those who have already tried this life hack say that this amazing combination works wonders.

All you need is water and sugar. The water should be non-carbonated. The solution neutralizes unwanted odors with minimal effort.
