How To Clean And Disinfect The Microwave Thoroughly

To clean the microwave can be a real challenge, especially if is full of grease and food debris. The removable components can be cleaned easily, but the interior of a microwave can be very hard to clean. And if you don’t want to use chemicals, I can understand you, because I try to avoid them as much as I can. And the following solution I found on the internet is very effective.

How to clean the microwave with lemon

You need:
– 1 lemon
– a glass bowl
– a clean cloth or paper towels

Pour half a cup of water into the bowl, cut the lemon in half and squeeze its juice in the bowl.

Put the bowl in the microwave and microwave it for 3 minutes at high temperature. Don’t open the door just let the steam there for 5 minutes.

Remove the bowl and using a cloth or paper towels, wipe the interior of the microwave. You’ll see how easily all the grease and hardened food will be cleaned.

How to clean the microwave with vinegar
Vinegar is a bit more effective than lemon in removing old grease stains and hardened food inside the microwave.

All you have to do is add 2 tablespoons of vinegar in a bowl with water and a few drops of citrus essential oil.

The steam will do its job! Repeat the same procedure as above.
