If you are among the millions of people who own and use a microwave you probably know how annoying it can be when you try to clean it. The baked on splatters, spills and messes inside and the tight space can make it the most dreaded kitchen appliance. While all the scrubbing and scraping just make us postpone cleaning it until we just have to do it. But even when that dreaded moment comes, despite all our best efforts, it’s still not as clean as many of us would like it to be.
But you can relax now and breathe easily because we have a trick which will make your life much easier. Cleaning your microwave will become the easiest chore and once you read this it’ll be the only method you ever use from now on!
Forget about the chemicals, forget about the scraping and scrubbing, you only need a bowl, some water and lemon juice or vinegar! I prefer lemon juice because of the nice scent it leaves behind.
Here’s how you can clean your microwave easy, naturally and without scrubbing:
Take one small microwave bowl and squeeze some lemon juice (about 1/8 or 1/4 cup). Fill it with water (half way up). If you have fresh lemons even better, squeeze half a lemon and leave it inside the bowl, the results will be even better.
Put the bowl inside the microwave and turn it on for about 5 minutes on a higher temperature. When it’s finished leave the bowl inside for about 2-3 more minutes and wait for the steam to work its magic. After this you can open it and remove the bowl, just be careful not to burn yourself, the bowl will be hot.
If you have a microwave with a spinning plate, remove it and wipe it. Then wipe down the sides, top and bottom and watch as the grease slides down the sides with ease. If by any chance you have some stubborn spot left on the plate you can repeat the process with the same bowl or you can just take a cloth, dip it in the lemon solution and place it over the spot. 30 seconds later you should be able to wipe it right off!
Voila! Your microwave is as good as now!
