Camelbak makes some rinse packets that seem to work well. Admittedly they do leave a bit of an odd taste if you dont rinse the bag well, but it really gets that plastic taste out. You drop them in like a alka-seltzer pack and let it sit a bit, then rinse out a few times. Best of luck.

Only thing i can think of offhand is one of those Camelback cleaning tablets. You have to be careful though and make sure you get it all out after cleaning. Never done it myself but I've read plenty about it at the store I work at. Maybe it can help. But then again if baking soda doesn't work...

I've owned a Camelbak bladder and insulation pouch meant to be hung inside of a backpack for nearly four years now. It's never left the drawer I put it in when I bought it. I bought it to go inside of a black NorthFace pack I have and really like, but I don't think they work well together. ...just saying because I'm more venting than anything else. I'd love to get rid of it.

so..... after about 15 washes with baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, and lime juice, i finally have a non-flavored resivoir. on another side note, took my newest dog out hiking today with my older lab. good times had by all, lots of work on listening, and command recognition.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
