How do I get the stink out of lunchboxes/cooler?

My dd's lunchbox smells like spoiled milk. I have washed that thing so many times and I just can't get the stink out. It has the plastic waterproof material inside. Her sippy cups spill occasionally and I try to clean them out as soon as we get home but no luck.....stinkaroni. My friend said to just toss it but I don't want to. I just bought it 2 months ago and it still looks brand new.

Could you making a paste with baking soda and let it sit? I'm really not sure what will work but thought that I'd throw that out there.

Wipe with a diluted bleach solution, then throw in the washer to give it a deep clean!

50/50 vinegar and water swish around and let sit. then rinse clean---works like a charm.

baking soda paste will work too
