Eliminating Microwave Odors
If your microwave reeks of burned gourmet microwave meal gone wrong or burnt popcorn, there are some easy ways to get the odor out.
Cut up a lemon and place it in a bowl of water. Cook the lemons in the microwave for about 3 minutes and let them sit there overnight. In the morning, the smell should be gone.
Put 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds in a coffee cup and fill it halfway up with water. Heat it in the microwave for a few minutes. It helps to set the coffee cup in a bowl to catch any water and grounds that boil over. Wipe out the microwave afterwards with a dry cloth.
Pour vanilla extract in a bowl and heat it for about 2 minutes. When it’s cool, throw it out.
Set an open box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in there overnight and close the door. The baking soda will absorb the odors.
