White Vinegar? The EOs should mask the smell and vinegar kills mould - don't know about other things, but I should think it'll do the job. But if you use vinegar, I don't think you'd need to leave it to stand (I think it would go a bit yucky. But then, it might not... I use it neat.) Hope this helps.
