Cure For That Leftover Smell In Your Microwave

Remove food odors from your microwave without the use of toxic, expensive cleaning products. The next time you’re eating oranges, save a couple of peels and pop them straight into your microwave oven. Microwave the peels for about one minute, and the smell of leftover stew, onion soup, spaghetti sauce or whatever it was that stunk up your microwave will have disappeared.
