Looking for an antimicrobial agent to add to a beer cooler.

In the summer, I like to keep beer in a cooler outside. Even when draining the water and adding ice as needed, the cooler begins to develop a funky smell after a week or so. I had the idea to put an antimicrobial additive to the cooler. I'm looking for something that is effective and won't kill me (and preferably won't impart terrible taste to the water that may get on the rim of the can like iodine would). I was thinking propylene glycol. Will this work? In what concentration? Better suggestions?
