Microwave Cleaning:

Have you ever exploded pizza sauce in the microwave? Today’s post will show you how to clean a microwave using only water,

vinegar, and steam! It’s easy to do, only takes a few minutes, and it works great !

Fill a microwaveable bowl with 2 cups of water and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Add a drop of essential oil if you want to mask the vinegar smell.

Drop a toothpick into the bowl of water to help keep the water from boiling out over the edges of the bowl. Put the bowl in the microwave, shut the door, and run the microwave on high for 5 minutes.

When the timer goes off, don’t open the microwave right away. Leave the door shut for 2-3 more minutes to let the steam continue to work. The steam will help loosen up caked on bits of food, and the vinegar and lemon oil will help eliminate any odors.

When you open the door, be careful pulling the bowl out; it will be very hot! Remove the turntable tray (carefully, it will be hot as well) and wash it in the sink.

Take your sponge and wipe down the inside of the microwave; the dirt and food will come right off!
