Clean the Microwave from Inside
The mixture of splatters and smells can leave your microwave looking, well, rough. To target your microwave’s interior – turntable included — follow this step-by-step:
- Combine 1 cup water and lemon, lime, or orange slices (squeeze juice from the fruit slices into the water) into a microwave-safe bowl. If you have white or apple cider vinegar on hand, combine a few tablespoons and 1 cup water into a microwave-safe bowl.
- Place it inside the microwave and turn it on high power for several minutes until the mixture boils and the window steams up.
- Let cool for 5 minutes before opening the door, then remove the bowl and wipe the inside clean with a sponge.
