    I find that happens after time too. I buy those really big jugs of vinegar at the grocery store. Just pour some into the container with a bit of water and then scrub it a bit. I bought a toilet cleaner brush just for that. After scrubbing just rinse well with tapwater and it'll be nice and clean again.

    I'm not sure if the smell is actually harmful or not. I'd just use up the water you have and then clean out the bucket before adding more to it. I wouldn't throw out good NSW just because of this.

    I had the same problem, opened up my nsw tub after a few weeks and it had a funky smell. Come to find out it was just the evaporated fresh water that collected on the lid of the tub, after I let the tub air out for a few hours or so the nsw had no smell to it at all.
