    Soak it off with papertowels first that you throw in the garbage.

    Hi Linda. I put a bowl or cup of water and heat it up for about a minute and a half. After it is done remove the bowl (be careful it may be hot)and wipe the microwave clean. You can also put some lemon juice in the water for odors.

    Heat a small bowl with water and lemon in the microwave. Works wonders.

    Use a bowl of 50/50 water and vinegar in the microwave for about three minutes. Use a toothpick or similar in the bowl to break the surface tension. Don't remove the bowl immediately when the microwave stops. Let it sit for about two minutes. You want the steam to break up the grease. Carefully remove the bowl , it will be hot. Wipe it down with paper towels.
