Cleaning a dirty microwave in 6 minutes

Did something just explode in your microwave?

Did you put a bowl of pasta in the microwave that spattered everywhere or have you simply not cleaned out your microwave for some time. The good news is that a microwave oven is very easy to clean.
  • Wipe out your microwave to remove any loose food or large particles.
  • Half fill a bowl with water and bring it to a boil in the microwave. This will take approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Add some lemon juice to your water before boiling if you have a smell you want to remove. 
  • Once the water has reached boiling point, turn off the microwave and keep the door closed for 5-6 minutes. This will allow the steam to loosen the food inside. 
  • Taking care, remove the boiling water from the microwave. 
  • Wipe the particles with a damp cloth.
