I gave it a go last night and scrapped it off this morning, the smell is really faint now I hit it with bleach and water approx. 50/50 I'll give it a sniff tonight and if all is good I'll seal it up. I think I just need to be a little more diligent with my oiling and waxing. Probably another 2-3 cleanings with the soda and it will be odor free.
