I took all the litter pans outside, and washed them wiht bleach and hot water, letting them dry in the sun. I find being plastic they tend over the winter get this smell to them. Whereas in the summer I take them outside and throughly clean them each week. I am just bringing out Radar's cage to clean also Radar's cage, then the guinea pigs tomorrow. I will be going through things selling what I can or throwing out what I can.

do you use the litter with baking soda in it? I wonder if adding baking soda to the litter will help evaporate the smell into the litter itself as it should keep instead of on the container. I know what you mean though, it's not a good smell and the pan does need to be cleaned every bit. Used to take a clorox wipe to the pan every other week or so to get rid of the grime that built up around it as well as the smell.

I usually just buy a container of baking soda, and mix it with the litter (it's cheapier), it's ridiculous the price of litter. But doesn't seem to really help, it does help some but not all the way. I may try wiping it down, I just find in the winter I scoop and dump them but don't wipe them.
