In an empty dishwasher, fill a dishwasher safe cup with vinegar and start the cycle. During the rinse, fill that cup with bleach and let the cycle finish. Not only will you clean your dishwasher, you will remove the odor.

How do you get a smell of burnt plastic in the house?

I do not get why you would want your house to smell like burnt plastic, but to make a long story short, go burn/melt plastic. They do not melt at very high temperatures (lcompared to some other substances). You can put some plastic in a pan and heat it up until it melts but MAKE SURE to do it safely and watch it as it burns at ALL TIMES. Xox, Smartiiz. by burnig plastic
