    Atomizer - switching fragrances

    Hey guys,

     

    I have an Atomizer, just one at the current moment but wanted to find out how I would clean it out and get rid of the scent that was currently in the atomizer to make room for a new fragrance?  Bleach?  Regular soap and let it soak overnight ?  Whats the best way to get the current scent out of the atomizer so I can re-use it with another fragrance...

     

    Thanks guys for your help !

    Rinsing a few times, then alcohol - bleach and soap have a smell of their own. let it air overnight and repeat a few times.  The glass part should be fine, the plastic part never really loses all the previous smell, but once you put in the new frag, whatever's in there will be overwhelmed by the new frag.

     

    This assumes that you're talking about a nice atomizer. Plastic atomizers are so cheap that it's probably not worth the pain.

    I once had a really fancy Tom Ford atomizer that had my sister's Bois Marocain in it.
    I must've washed it 5 days in a row with scalding hot water & detergent. Would leave it soaking in detergent all night too.

    Still smelled like Bois Marocain.
