You know how sometimes you microwave food and it ends up smelling like something you made last week?
No one wants broccoli vaguely reminiscent of burnt popcorn or that super greasy pizza.
But as much as you clean it, you just can’t get rid of that darn stinky odor in the microwave.
Removing Microwave Odors
Frigidaire passed along this odor-removing solution that requires little more than pushing buttons.
- 1 cup water
- juice of 1 lemon
- grated lemon peel
- several whole cloves
Combine all ingredients together in a glass measuring cup and boil for several minutes in the microwave on full power. Allow the hot mixture to sit in the microwave until cool (this is when the magic happens).
Wipe interior with a soft cloth.
