Subject says it all really... OH warmed some curry in the microwave a week or so ago, despite cleaning it still has a really horrible smell, any tips?

Thanks x

Lemon juice on a wet cloth nuke until steamy, then use cloth to clean.

If no good, pot of sodium bicarbonate overnight

On a similar note, I get a mug of cold water, add vinegar or lemon juice and microwave for a minute or so, this gets rid of the grease/enables to clean better and smells a bit fresher. Then put some bicarb in a pot and leave to stand inside overnight - and bingo!

Our kitchens must smell similarly sweet!

I agree with the lemon, i cut one in half and put in a cereal bowl of cold water. Put it on high for 3 mins and let the steam trap. Then give it a wipe round.

Or some white vinegar diluted in water.
