Microwave Cleaning Made Easy
Ridding microwaves of dirt can be really stressful—unless you know the most effective methods to deal with scraps and unpleasant odors. With these tips and tricks, you’ll find it much easier to clean your microwave.
Let’s be honest: almost no one cleans the microwave immediately after each use. But unfortunately, you’ll still have to brave the task at some point.
With water and lemon slices, you can make a quick and easy difference in the interior of your microwave. This method not only works very well, it also smells wonderful. Simply put a small bowl filled with water and lemon slices in the microwave, and then turn the unit on for about five minutes. During this time, the dirt will loosen. After the five minutes, wipe the microwave’s interior with a cloth—you should find the dirt easily dissolves.
Prefer to rely on the power of classic detergent? Again, there is a very simple method at hand. Add some household detergent to warm water and soak a microfiber cloth before wiping the microwave. This soapy water should easily remove fat splashes.
Burnt residue in your device might seem to be a bigger challenge, but there’s a simple trick even for. Soak several rags in a water-detergent mixture, place in the microwave, and turn on for a few minutes. The steam created effectively dissolves fat and burnt residue. But be careful: Allow the cloths to cool slightly before removing them.
Your microwave is now spotlessly clean but still smells unpleasant? Some fresh coffee is the solution. Put a bowl of coffee grinds in the microwave oven and prepare to be patient. The grinds will bind the unwanted scent after a few hours.
Generally speaking, cleaning a microwave is easy but you should always work in a careful manner. Don’t scrub too hard, even if the dirt does not dissolve immediately. With gentle cleaning methods such as those suggested above, your microwave will last much longer.
