What kind of glue are you using that smells so bad? I have never had this problem. maybe another brand would help?
I think it might have had a reaction to the silicone bases I was using.
Not sure if this will work, but to get rid of the smell of paint in a freshly painted room, I leave lemons cut in half and it work, the lemons absorb the paint smell, it may work for craft glue if you enclose your items with cut lemons.
