    Try some bleach and water, and leave it open in the sun for a day, then the baking soda, sooner or later you will just get used to it and not smell it any more! HA!:lol:

    When I was in about 8th grade, I took my Dad's scout fishing one day. I guess my jar of shad gizzards roled under the back seat, and I did not see it. It was back there for a few months, and in August, it got hot enough one day while he was at work and the lid blew off!! He and his buddy had to drive home (about 25 miles) with there heads out the windows, and it was about 100 degrees!! You talk about a butt chewin! I don't think we ever got that smell out of that truck!:roll_eyes:

    bounce dryer sheets. when the sun shines down on it it will activate and really soak up the smell. also charcoal works well to pick up smell.

    put a quart of tomato juice in it and leave it for a couple of hours that should take the smell out of it. hope that helps

    That is a very good idea. Empty out your tool box and pour in a bag of charcoal followed by a box of baking soda. Leave it in there for a week or so.

    I don't know about tool boxes but Johnson's Baby Bath will take the smell off your hands. It works better than anything else I've tried.

    I have found that leaving it out in the sun for a week will take away just about any smell after you have washed it out with bleach.

    I've heard that newspapers will take the stink out of an ice chest after keeping fish in it. I left some shad gizzards in my wife's trunk one time. We threw everything away that was in the trunk, and then soaked the whole trunk with Febreze. Worked surprisingly well. I'd say if hte toolbox was metal, that you oughta try a very strong bleach & hot water treatment, then fill that baby with lightly wadded up newspapers. Either that or sell it at a garage sale & go get another one.

    LoL...Come one do i really have to justify that with an awnser. Even though she is an RN. Let';s just say she's not the brightest crayon in the box and i did let her smell it once because i mean like that and i got a chuckle.

    I use just a little Crest toothpaste and water to take the smell off my hands, never tried it on a tool box though. Now I mean to say, that was a funny story from my side, sure it's a bummer on yours. ROTFLOL
