I am not one to clean out my Microwave as much as I should. During a week-long obsession with Pot Pies by my Three year old, we had a few mishaps with pot pies spilling over, exploding, and all around wreaking havoc upon the insides of our poor little microwave.
As you can, see – it’s a disaster. So, what was I to do? I hate scrubbing. I hate soaking. I always forget about soaking things until several days later and have to re-soak and clean out the new bacteria environment my “cleaning escapade” has created.
So I went to Pinterest and search of a Lemon and water DIY. Elyntia had mentioned something about this process before, but I couldn’t remember it exactly. Thanks to Simply Stacie’s article on How to clean your microwave without scrubbing or chemicals, I began my adventure.
First, you need a microwave safe bowl, some lemons cut up, and a little bit of vinegar.
Stick it in your Microwave for 5 minutes and let sit for a few minutes after:
I was 100000% skeptical before wiping it off with a damp cloth. But oh my God, it works. I stuck the water, lemon, and vinegar concoction back into the microwave for a few more minutes to try to finish getting the crud off of the glass, but this was AMAZING. Highly recommend it. Under 10 minutes a clean microwave with little effort!
