How do I get rid of a bad smell in my microwave

Report as

Vinegar. Put a small dish of vinegar with some newspaper around it and leave it with the door closed over night. Vinegar is a strong deodorizer and newspaper is good for absorbing smells. Hope it works :)

If there is food stuck on in there then that's probably where the smell is coming from so try cleaning it :)

If not, wipe down the inside with some Windex or bleach, which would probably work even better. That should work because if bleach doesn't I don't know what will!

In your clean microwave, boil a bowl of water with some lemon slices for about 30-60 sec. Let steep for a few min in the microwave. Wipe down condensation. Remove. Should take care of odors.

1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water in a microwave safe container. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Careful when you open due to steam, wipe out all the old food and spills. Your "foul" smell should be gone too. Any type of vinegar works.

First taka out all removable shelves or rotating trays and mechanisms. clean them separately with dish detergent or in a dishwasher if safe to do. Clean the interior first with vinegar than with a strong solution of baking soda and water. Don't forget to rinse with a wet sponge.
