How can I get a bad smell out of my stainless steel water bottle?

I admit, I'm a dummy. I left my stainless steel water bottle in the car for DAYS with water in it. It smells putrid, rancid, awful, gross...

How can I fix this? I really love my water bottle.

I've tried boiling water poured right into the bottle and allowed to sit until it cools. I bought a rigid bottle brush and scrubbed the life out of it with hot soapy water. Right now I'm leaving it on the couter with a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar. Any other ideas?

I would dilute vinegar and water and let it sit. Then empty it, rinse it, and then air it out. It worked for me when I tried to clean out a smelly jar.

Boil lemon and water pour it in and let it sit.
