This could be why your kitchen smells strange sometimes.

Your microwave does a lot of work reheating food and making snacks, but there’s one part you might be forgetting to clean.

Did you know that over-the-range microwaves have filters that need attention too?

These filters, called grease filters and charcoal filters, help keep your kitchen smelling fresh and your microwave running smoothly.

The grease filter stops grease and debris from entering the vent system, while the charcoal filter absorbs odors.

Cleaning the grease filter every few months and replacing the charcoal filter every six months can help maintain your microwave’s performance and prevent unpleasant smells in your kitchen.

If you’re not sure where to find these filters or how to clean them, don’t worry—there are plenty of resources available to guide you through the process.
