Is it better to clean it with lemon or vinegar?

Both can be used in your solution together. You can add a squeeze of lemon in the water/vinegar mix to help reduce the strong smell of the vinegar.

Will this deodorize my microwave?

Yes! Vinegar is an acetic acid colorless organic compound which is about 5% acid. The acidic nature of vinegar is a great deodorizer because it’s strong enough to dissolve grease, grime and kills bacteria.

3. Leave the bowl in there for another 2 minutes with the door closed.

4. Open the door and wipe the mess with a damp towel or paper towels. If it’s really bad, you can use a paper towel first to get the majority of the mess cleaned up, then do the final cleaning with a damp cloth.
