How can I remove acquired odors from a TPR toy?

Rhapsodia
Related to: 
I recently got the Rhapsodia, which is made of "non-porous TPR". It rates an 8 on the safety scale, I'm not planning on sharing it, and I'm only planning to use it anally so I've chosen to use it without condoms.

The issue I'm having is that it has picked up some unsavory smells through use that remain even after cleaning. The TPR had no smell before use, the smell it has now is decidedly the smell of poo. There is no mistaking this toy has been in someone's butt. I've been cleaning it with the Evolved toy cleaner and hot water. Is there something else I can use that would remove acquired smells better? I know TPR can't be sterilized, but if I try to use bleach water will that harm the material?

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

While it states that it is non-porous I don't think using bleach on this will do the job because then you will have a toy smelling like bleach. I think the only way it would hold "smell" is if it was porous just my opinion. I hope someone else has a better answer as I use strictly glass and silicone.

Well, I think I'd prefer the smell of bleach to the smell it has now! I just don't want to do it if it would otherwise damage the material.

I have no experience with "non-porous TPR," so I'm not sure what the surface is like. If it looses the non-porousness then you'll never get it clean.

Silicone is known non-porous, but it can still start to smell. It does this because of adsorbtion, not absorbtion. The chemicals that smell get along real well with the silicone and are hard to get off (like the red from tomatoes on Tupperware), but don't enter the toy - they're just on the surface.

I have good luck using dish liquid and shampoo, putting it on, letting it sit, rubbing a lot, then bringing the toys into the shower with me and letting the water run over them for a long time. Not always perfect, but gets rid of most of the smell.

Condoms also work, and I find that toys used after a small water enema don't get the smell as much as toys used without an enema.
