  • Hello my friend lol..Cut a lemon or an orange in half, and put 1 half into a bowl of water in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Not only do you get a nice smell but it w will clean your microwave as well. Clean down afterwards with a damp cloth. I hope either 1 helps you.Happy newyear :} P.S THANKS 2 THE PERSON ABOVE ME , 4 THE VANILLA EXTRACT, TIP AS WELL.

  • You can try a small dish of vanilla extract and run it for about 30 seconds. Or you could use lemon juice as well.

  • Try wiping with vinegar. Open the door to air dry. Vinegar smell will go away when dry. If odor still won't go away, sprinkle in baking soda and leave overnight.
