Since we heat all kinds of food in the microwave it is bound to have a strong odour if it is not cleaned once every 15 days, especially if you cook and heat non-vegetarian food regularly. Here’s how to get rid of the odour and clean your microwave from inside to keep it smelling good…
The simplest way to clean a microwave is to spray some liquid soap water inside and thoroughly clean it with a cloth to ensure all food particles are removed. For stubborn stains, spray the liquid, let it sit for five minutes and then wipe it clean.
Mix a cup of white vinegar (or baking soda) with water in a microwave-safe bowl, add a few slices of lemon and place the bowl in the microwave. Turn on the microwave and run on high for over 2 minutes, until the water fully comes to a boil. Let the bowl stay in for 15 minutes before you open the microwave door. This will completely absorb the odour.
Repeat Steps 1 & 2 every two weeks. Ensure that spills or food stains are cleaned immediately to avoid any unpleasant smell in the microwave. With a little care, your microwave can stay clean and deodorized.
-> Allow the microwave to dry after cleaning before you close the door
-> Do not place any metal in the microwave, as it can easily catch fire
