Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to get the burnt popcorn smell out of your microwave

This tip comes by way of Ronda Bumgardner, the Winston-Salem Journal's "Straight Answer Ma'am" since 2000.

    Q. What can you do to clean a microwave that smells like burnt popcorn whenever you use it?

    A. The burnt popcorn smell, like the smell of anything burnt to a crisp, can be difficult to remove.

    Heloise, the queen of household hints, suggests combining a cup of water and lemon juice in a bowl. Microwave the mixture until it is boiling. Let the liquid cool for 10 to 15 minutes inside the microwave.

    Other Web sites we found suggested leaving the mixture in the closed microwave for 30 minutes to as long as overnight.





If you're ready to take a walk on the wild side, watch what happens

when you simply throw a bowl of popcorn into the microwave.
