Does your refrigerator stink? Cut a potato in half and poke a few dried cloves into it. The potato acts like a sponge and will absorb smells, and the cloves have a natural scent that can mask overpowering and lingering odors. If your microwave is also smelly, skip chemical cleaner and do one thing: Fill a bowl with dried cloves and leave it inside the microwave overnight. No heating and no other steps are necessary; the powerful and pleasant-smelling cloves will leave a nice, spicy, herbal fragrance inside the microwave.
