    Hi Gale,
    Try cleaning it with baking soda & water. It might help to let the baking soda sit for a while then clean it off after it's done it's magic. Wishing you the best.

      It's probably on the walls, floor, etc. It will wear off eventually or you can wipe down everything with baking soda solution. Happened to me about a year ago and I cleaned everything except ceilings and it still took several weeks to lose the smell. Home Depot has a product, Odoban, which was very helpful. There are others on the market.

    Try putting a small bowl of vinegar in the microwave and microwave until it boils. Turn off the microwave and leave the door closed for a couple of hours. Then, leave the door open a bit for a few hours with a bowl of baking soda inside.

    I would agree with Pung61. Except I'd mix vinegar and water.

    Try leaving charcoal in the microwave. I've also heard baking soda will absorb smells.

    These are tried solutions and cheap. Have you tried OdoBan from Sam's Club? It works wonders on smells and leaves a fresh scent behind for around 9.99

    I've used OdoBan. It does work well like Seethebeauty stated. I get it at Lowes.

    Hi, put a bowl with 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/3 cup of water in the microwave for 1 minute, then wipe it all down.
