When it’s time to clean the microwave you might be tempted just to toss the whole thing in the garbage, or have it labeled as a toxic waste site. Tackling a messy microwave seems like a job that takes an entire day, but with the right technique cleaning your microwave is quick and painless.
All you need to get started is distilled, white vinegar, water and a microwavable bowl. Fill the bowl with water and add ¼ cup vinegar. Now pop the bowl in the microwave and microwave it on high for five minutes.
Remove the bowl from the microwave very carefully and begin cleaning right away. The steam from the bowl of water loosens and softens stuck on food inside of the microwave, making it easier to clean. Dip a sponge into the warm water from the bowl and you have a great cleaning solution already made!
If the first round of cleaning still leaves your microwave with stuck on gunk, just repeat the process again. For super dirty microwaves, heat the water for five minutes and then wait a few minutes before opening the door. This allows the steam to keep working away at the stuck on dirt.
Don’t stress when you open the door to your microwave, with this little trick you can clean your microwave in minutes.
