How To Keep Your Microwave Odor Free

How To Keep Your Microwave Odor Free



Planning to bake a chocolate cake? But your microwave smells of the salmon that you cooked last time? Don’t worry! We have the best ways to quickly remove the odor from your microwave! And that too with the ingredients available in your kitchen.

Microwaves are vital appliances used in almost every kitchen. At times, they can collect odor from the foods that you cook, especially when they get splattered, spilled or burnt inside. But, removing such smells is not an arduous task and you can do it yourself without any help.

Before you start deodorizing your Glen microwave, make sure there are no splashes of foods inside. With a wet cloth, clean the interiors and let it stay for a while. If required, you can use a normal dish-washing liquid too. It will make the whole process of clean up quite shorter and convenient.

Method 1: Water & Baking soda

Yes, we know that this method might sound very common but this is proved to provide you best results in minimum possible time. All you have to do is to mix 1 cup of water and two tablespoons of baking soda in a microwave safe bowl or dish. Now place it inside the appliance and run it at high temperature. Once the mixture will start heating, the steam will be formed leading to smell reduction.

Method 2: Water & Lemon

This is yet another best way to make your microwave odor-free. You will need a lemon and half a cup of water. Partly squeeze the juice of the lemon into the water. Thereafter, pour the mixture into the microwave-proof bowl along with the lemon slices. Turn on the appliance and set the timer for 3 minutes. Wait for the steam to do wonders.

Method 3: Vinegar

In this procedure, you will first need to turn off the Glen built in microwave. Take a clean sponge and dip it into a cup full of vinegar. Gently wipe off the interiors of the appliance and let it stay open for around an hour. If the smell stays intact, then repeat the method 1 after some time.

The given methods will surely help you achieve the best results with minimum strain and expense. However, it is also mainly recommended to use a spray bottle filled with equal portions of water and vinegar for cleaning on weekly basis. And yes, don’t forget to wipe the microwave after every use with a damp cloth to reduce the risk of odors being spread to other foods.
