    Fill a microwavable bowl with a cup of water and 1 tablespoon of white vinegarand Microwave it for 3 minutes and leave it with the door shut for 10-15 minutes.

    Steam will loosen smell-causing stuck to the walls.

    After the waiting period, remove the bowl and wipe the inside of the microwave down with a paper towel.

    Hello Karen,

    a bowl of water a slice of bread with vanilla added and brought to the boil and then let cool should help remove it! Best wishes.

    put one drop of vanilla extract on a paper towel that is rolled into a ball and let it sit with the door shut for an hour or more remove the paper towel and the vanilla smell with go away and take the odors with it - don't let it touch anything except the glass because it will stain

    I would microwave lemon juice in some water until it boils and then wipe down the steam. Then let a bowl of baking soda sit in it overnight.

    Put a box of baking soda inside the microwave over night and shut the door. This should help remove the smell.

    1 cup vinegar

    1 cup water

    Wooden spoon

    You can add a couple of drops of lemon essential oils if the vinegar scent is too strong.

    Please in a microwave safe bowl. Spoon is to prevent overheating. Turn on for 5 minutes. Sit for 2 minutes. Remove with mitt. Wipe clean.

    I put a glass bowl filled with cool water and add lemon juice to it. Run the microwave for 5 minutes, let the steam work on it. Then, while it is still moist, take everything out and scrub all the inside, using a microfiber cloth and hot soapy water. Really scrub the nooks and crannies. After the glass base, has been scrubbed clean, put it back in, and do the water method again. This time, wipe it out with a clean microfiber cloth, and leave the door open so it airs out. Mine is part of the venting above my stove, so I also clean my filters. Stay safe and well!
