Kitchen Tip-- Clean Microwave

The Microwave is one of those appliances I forget to clean until I go to use it and realize it could use a good scrub. By that time it's usually caked with splatters from all sorts of food. To remove all that grime simply fill a microwave safe dish with 1-2 cups water and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice. Heat in microwave for 5 minutes or until water is boiling. Let sit with the door closed for 3-5 minutes. The steam will loosen all the grime and the lemon juice will leave a clean scent. After 3-5 minutes remove the water and the turn table. Wipe microwave with a wet rag. Wash turn table and return to microwave. If you still have a food stuck, repeat process. 


  1. I totally agree that my microwave doesn't get the attention it should (until I go to use it). What a great idea, especially the lemon scent.

  2. This is my favorite way to clean the microwave. Wont do it any other way.
