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.

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!
