I've found soaking them in a bleach/water soultion will kill the smell very effectively, but man, be careful not to use much bleach and rinse very well. I'll use maybe 3/4 teaspoon bleach for 2-2.5 gallons water.
I do this immediately after transferring so my primary has a few days to completely dry before its next use.
