How to clean your microwave safely & easily

What does the inside of your microwave look like? Have you cleaned it recently? Is it a dreaded chore? Sometimes, it gets bad and we keep putting it off thinking we are going to have to scrub it and you just don’t want to hassle with it right now…
Recently, I was reminded of a quick way to clean it and it barely takes any time & effort!
Put 1 cup of water in the microwave for 3 minutes on high and then let it steam in there with the door closed for 5-10 minutes (depending on how badly it needs cleaned, lol). After the time is up, literally just take a rag and wipe! If you have any odor in there you can also squeeze some lemon juice in the water before you boil it. Easy, peasy. I love this kind of quick homekeeping chore! :)

Ours wasn’t too bad…but I try to do it at least every other week so it never gets bad.

I know…not too dramatic of an after since I don’t let it get too bad, but in person it did look a little worse and even if yours is REALLY bad,  I think you will pleased how easy it is to clean!

Now that you know such a quick way to clean your microwave, yours will never be too icky again! :)

And the best part, no icky toxic chemicals-just letting the power of steam do it’s job!
