UPDATE: I followed the instructions. Now the buckets smell like pickles and Murphy’s Oil Soap. Completely unusable for food or water storage. I wrote Firehouse back. We’ll see if they have any other suggestions.
They are PICKLE BUCKETS and smell like PICKLES.
I have tried everything to get the smell out. Nothing seemed to work. So being the genius I am… I wrote Firehouse Subs and asked them. Here’s the recipe I got:
I received your web comment in regards to getting the pickle smell out of our buckets.
In pickle bucket mix the following:
1/3 Cup Bleach
1/3 Cup Murphy Oil Soap
1 Gallon Hot Water
Then you can use the mixture to wash the bathroom floors, baths and/or showers or just let it sit for 2 hours!
