How To Clean Your Microwave Naturally with Just a Lemon
Small microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, 1-lemon clean, dry dishtowel or cleaning cloth.
Measure the water: Measure about 1/2 cup of water into a measuring cup or bowl. Add the lemon: Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the water. Drop the lemon halves into the bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes: Place the bowl in the microwave. Microwave on high power for 3 minutes so the liquid comes to a boil. Let stand for 5 minutes: Do not open the microwave door; the steam trapped inside will help loosen food gunk. Let stand for 5 minutes. Clean the microwave: Open the door and carefully remove the bowl with the lemons. If your microwave has a turntable, lift it out and wipe it clean. Wipe the inside of the microwave clean starting with the ceiling and the sides. Scrub the stubborn spots: If you come across stubborn spots that won’t easily wipe away, dip the corner of your dishtowel in the lemon-water and scrub until the spot comes away. Remember the door: While you’re wiping, don’t forget to wipe down the door. Replace the turntable: If you took it out, put the turntable back and you’re good to go — with a nice, clean microwave!
