Q: I recently stumbled on your site and have been loving all the tips! I was wondering if you might be able to give a little advice for cleaning the smell out of old food jars? I've saved tons of jars from pickles and other odds and ends but no matter how much I wash them they still end up with a funky smell! Any thoughts? Thanks!
