Keeping your microwave clean is easy if you wipe it out after every use. But I’m fairly certain that few people actually put that advice into practice! If your microwave is a mess like mine is right now, take 5 minutes today to clean your microwave.
To easily clean your microwave:
- Fill a microwave safe cup or bowl with water and microwave on high until the water boils (4-5 minutes). If you’d like to use a bit of natural disinfectant, use half vinegar in place of the water. You can also add a squirt of lemon juice for a fresh scent.
- After the water boils, keep the microwave door closed for a few minutes so the steam can soften the dried on food.
- Using a damp rag (feel free to use some of the warm water from the bowl) to clean the microwave. For extra tough spots, a kitchen scraper works wonders!
- Wash the glass tray in the sink, or just stick in in the dishwasher to let it do the work for you!
Is this an easy task today or what? I think it might even take less than 5 minutes. Maybe only 2. Time yourself and let me know!
