The new bottle has got a weird smell. I kept the bottle without lid from some time but that didn't help much.
It is a plastic bottle. I washed it with plain water.
What is a quick solution to remove odor from a freshly purchased bottle?

Wash it with hot soapy water then leave to drip dry. If, when dry, the smell remains then fill with water and put in the fridge for 24+ hours. This should remove the smell. Always make sure when not in use that the lid stays off. Keep the bottle somewhere cool and dry when not using and without the lid on.
To remove unwanted smells of a new bottle we have to keep in mind that the substances involved may not be water-soluble. Therefore simply washing may not suffice to remove them.
There are several approaches we can try (if needed also in combination):
My favourite method definitely is milk, because of its potential to bind lipid-soluble chemicals which may be released from the plastic bottle. By this we can be a little bit less concerned about potential harm to our health from an unknown substance we smelled.
Still if it was me I would not take the risk of using a weirdly smelling plastic bottle for drinks, simply because I don't know what chemicals there are, and I can see that more and more substances involved in plastic production were being proven to be harmful.
it is quite common that the new water bottle contains the smell so the best ways are:the first is that rinse the bottle with cold water and then put the warm water in it and then put one table_spoon of the baking soda which is one of the natural smell remover. place it for a night and then wash it properly and leave it to dry completely. the second opinion of mine is that water bottles should be washed and then filled after two or three days so it might not have a bad smell.
