How to Get Burnt Smell Out of Microwave
Do you want to know how to get burnt smell out of microwave ovens? There’s a natural way to do it without using harsh chemical liquid cleansers.
Microwave smell is due to food residue and burnt food. Spills will turn into mold and burnt food stuck in the microwave will also smell bad.
You can use dish washing liquid or all purpose cleansers. However, if you can’t buy them right away, here are a few alternatives you can use.
Make Your Own Cleansers
What’s the best cleanser and deodorizer for a smelly microwave oven? You most likely have it at home already.
1. Baking soda
2. Vinegar (apple cider or white)
3. Lemon or lime juice
4. Sponge or dish cloth
5. Bottle spray
Baking Soda Method
Step 1: Fill your cup halfway with baking soda
Step 2: Put two or three tablespoons of water in the cup
Step 3: Mix it into a paste
Step 4: Coat inside the microwave with the paste and let it sit overnight
Step 5: Wipe it down with a damp cloth
Step 1: Pour two to three spoonful of vinegar in a microwave-safe bowl
Step 2: Turn on the microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes
Step 3: Let the bowl cool inside the oven for 5 minutes before opening
Warning: Be careful of very hot liquids and steam. Make sure you gave the vinegar and bowl enough time to cool down.
Step 4: Open the door
Step 5: Remove the bowl
Step 6: Clean inside the oven using a clean sponge or dishcloth
Lemon or Lime Juice method
This is an additional and optional method to use after the baking soda method or the vinegar method.
Step 1: Put a few drops of lemon juice in a sponge or dishcloth
Step 2: Rub it inside the oven or spray with the spray bottle
Step 3: Drop a few more lemon juice as needed
Step 4: Wash your sponge or dishcloth
Step 5: Wipe the inside with a damp dish cloth
Cleaning Exterior of Microwave
To complete the cleaning guide, here’s how to clean the exterior of your microwave.
Warning: Regardless of the cleanser you’re using, do not use a spray bottle when cleaning the exterior of your microwave as it will get into vents and even damage the control panel.
Step 1: Apply your cleanser in a dish cloth or sponge
Step 2: Wipe the microwave exterior with the dishcloth but make sure you’re not spilling water in the vents
Step 3: Buff dry with a clean and dry dishcloth

Why you need a scourer instead of ordinary dishcloths or sponges?
The primary reason is that scourers are tougher than sponges or all purpose dishcloths. It’s also easier to clean with the scourer.
