Run it through the dishwasher.

If you don't have an automatic dishwasher just soak it and the lid (the metal lid is the likely source of the odor) in super hot water with dishsoap in the sink. I've never ever known a 'glass' jar where you can't remove an odor after cleaning well, not even a glass jar that contained minced garlic.

If you still smell a pickle juice odor in the lid after doing the above just make a baking soda paste, scrub the lid well and allow to set for a few minutes and then wash again.

Soak the jar and the lid in vinegar (vinegar is cheap so if it takes a gallon to do this it will be worth it IF you really want to keep the jar).

Good luck!

Try leaving it sit with the lid off for a few days on the counter. You could also try crumpling up some newspaper and putting it inside the jar or putting some baking soda in it. If its a plastic jar you may not get the smell out at all but glass the smell should eventually go away. Good luck. Hopefully one of these suggestions works.

Deeli has the answer. Glass is easily cleaned but that lid if it has a gasket will keep that pickle odor unless you follow that baking soda idea. I've never had a problem after doing this. Good luck to you...

Put a tsp - TBS of baking soda in jar, fill with water, stir to mix, place outside in the sun and let it sit there for a day or so. I've done this for years with 5 gal pickle buckets and the lids from burger joints. I use the buckets for bbq sauce that I baste chicken halves with. Something about the UV from the sun and the baking soda works every time.

Crumpling up a couple pages of newspaper and stuff into the jar. Put the lid on, and in a few days, the order is gone. It works on plastic, too.

A piece of charcoal will work, too. Mother used to put a small bowl of charcoal in the refrigerator in lieu of baking soda.

1/4 tsp peanut butter add 1/2 cup very hot water, shake, shake shake, wash with little soap and water and voila, no odor anymore.
