Removing Odors From the Microwave

Lots of food smells linger in the microwave for a long time. To combat those odors and leave your microwave smelling fresh, use lemon essential oil. Just put a cup of water into a microwave-safe glass container and add 4 drops of lemon oil. Microwave the bowl on high for 2 minutes; keep the microwave door closed until the water is cooled a little, about 10 minutes.

Thank you for the tip of the lemon juice I used a cap full of lemon extract with 8 oz of water large bowl and 4 min. 2 then 2 did the trick. I tried the coffee and baking powder for 6 hours. Nothing! Then tried orange peel & cinnamon sticks in 10 oz of water 15 min. on med x 4 better. However every time I used the micro wave the burned smell of popcorn came out the vent. Now it smells like lemons. Thank you.
