The Many Uses of Vinegar/ My Lunch Screwup

A friend of mine told me that vinegar would clean your carpet.  I tried it and it does work and don't worry the smell will evaporate.  Mix vinegar and water in a bowl and try it.  And then yesterday.....stupid stupid mistake.  I usually eat Easy Mac for lunch.  I only get 30 minutes so I pop my Easy Mac in the microwave for 3-1/2 minutes and then plop down in the recliner and watch TV.  Yesterday I started to smell something a little funny but didn't get out of the recliner.  I was being lazy and reading a magazine.  So I just disregarded it.  The microwave beeped and I go into the kitchen to see smoke everywhere.  Stupid me had forgotten to put water in the Easy Mac.  Now I am a profressional Easy Mac cooker and should not have forgotten this vital ingredient but I did. 

So I opened the windows and tried to get the smoke out.  I put out a bowl of vinegar (hence another use of vinegar) to get rid of the smell.  I lit candles and turned the fans on.  Luckily yesterday was a beautiful day so it wasn't cold.  I called the hubs and told him what I did and he just laughed.  I should have gotten a pic of the black ball of Easy Mac with the little blue melted plastic.  I went to said friend's house ater that night(who gave me the vinegar recommendation) and when I got home it was still smelling of smoke. 

Today I have the windows open and it's still smoky.  Does anyone have any suggestions about how to get rid of the smoke smell?  And I will never ever forget to put the water in the Easy Mac again.
