Well, I *thought* I got a great deal from Ebay.... I won a bid for a hand crank pasta maker for $13.
HOWEVER... when I opened the priority mail shipping box, I was hit over the head with stinky, funky cigarette smoke.
The idea of rolling my pasta through this thing is not terribly appealing right now, and this problem is compounded by the fact that apparently you're never supposed to wash pasta makers with water. (does anyone know why this is?)
So, I need your help... how do I deodorize and sanitize my new pasta maker? Or is this $13 a total loss?
