For feeders?    Don't worry about it.    You are not going to eat that sugar water and the bees don't care about that smell.

try soaking the lids in some oxyclean.  for italian sauce smell, vinegar has done the trick for me.  also, several washes in the dishwasher usually work.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Stuff the jars with as much crumpled news paper as possible put the lid on and leave for a few days. This even works in refrigerators to get dead smell out. (don't ask you don't want to know) :) it takes A LOT of crumpled newspapers to fill a refrigerator!
