Oh boy. Maybe try spraying one of those “smell neutralizers”, the ones in a can?

Scrubbing the microwave with a combo of lemon juice and baking soda should help in there. For the house, have you tried Oust or Febreeze Air Effects?

That’s why you always add boiling water to instant noodles! : D

As for the smell…do you have any other portable fans you can use to blow the smell out the window? I also second using some sort of odour “remover” (like Febreeze or Oust). Aside from that, I think it’s probably just a waiting game.

Oh that sounds gross! All you can do is open up the windows and set up some fans to blow the stink out. It usually works for me anyways =. After about 10 minutes it’s a lot better. You could put some water with lemon in the microwave and let it go until it boils–that may help moisten the nasty crusties inside so you can wipe away the soot (and maybe the smell)

If you have any cinnamon sticks or vanilla extract, put a few of them or a few teaspoons of vanilla and add enough water to fill a small pan. Bring to a boil, then lower and simmer for at least an hour. Keep checking to make sure there’s enough liquid in the vanilla/water mixture or you’ll have burnt pot smell too!

Edit: small bowls of vinegar . i.e. finger bowls

Boil lemon water in the microwave, I would use a while sliced lemon and then just put a whole box of baking soda in it and leave it. As for the smell in the house boil cinnamon water on the stove or cloves. Works like a charm. FH forgets biscuits in the stove all the time, so I do this a lot, LOL.

Sorry to hear there’s something more amiss =(

(PS i’d probably get a new microwave, too! and ban him from the ramen noodles, lol)
