have a smell from cleaning solution I used to clean out microwave. Smell is still in microwave

Baking soda is good at absorbing odor. Maybe you could sprinkle a generous amount on the bottom of the microwave and run it on defrost for about 30 minutes. If the odor seems to abate after this, repeat 'til you're happy.
