  13. I use all these when I'm at my condo - vinegar, baking soda most of all, and lemon are my best-est friends. :D

    Baking Soda works for me every time. To remove the oil from microwaveable containers, I use baking soda + little hot water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. It's very effective in deodorizing and in removing oil.
