Hummingbird feeder problems

I recently bought a new hummingb feeder for my back porch. It worked amazing for the first three weeks and we had a ton of birds coming and going everyday. When it ran out of nectar, I took it inside and cleaned the bowl with warm water and nothing else. I filled it up with different nectar than previously used and now almost no birds stop by. If they do stop to feed, they only stay for a few seconds and try all the fake flowers and then leave. Previously they would just go to one of the plastic flowers and stay for a few minutes.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on? did they just really prefer the old nectar?
