Cleaning a microwave oven

Don’t worry, it is probably my last household hint. But I learned a great, simple way to clean the inside of a microwave oven. If it is a little dirty or very dirty. Put a cup of water in the middle and nuke it for three minutes. Take cup out and wipe the inside clean with a rag. The grime comes off easily.


much better tip than the one i’m using lately - put your food on a napkin and don’t look inside the microwave when you open the door :stuck_out_tongue:

Better tip than that, that actually works wonders. Place a glass bowl with a cup of white vinegar in the microwave and turn it on for three minutes. Be careful taking the bowl out because it will be hot but all sides including the the trimming roof will wipe clean. Those that don’t simply repeat. It’s fast, hypoallergenic and chemical free.


Lemon juice works too. But it’s not hypoallergenic.

I need to check my microwave oven, too. I rarely use it and haven’t clean it for long.
