My Favorite tip to Clean Splattered Microwaves
Got a splattered or smelly microwave? Clean in it 5 minutes flat with almost no elbow grease:
- Heat a cup of water for 3 minutes in the microwave
- Let it sit and steam up the microwave for 1 minute to soften all the stuck-ons
- Take 1 minute to wipe it out. Easy!
Got smells too? Add a lemon slice or lemon juice to the water before you heat it to freshen things up.
Timesaver tip: Common sense will tell you to wipe up immediately after a mess has been made before it can get stuck on. But if that just isn’t gonna happen, wipe the microwave out after you heat any liquid (coffee, tea, soup, etc.) since the steam will still do the trick.
