Clean a Microwave with a Lemon

3/29/2016 (Permalink)

Since microwaves made their debut in the 1980's they have become a kitchen appliance that is used often and at times overused. The more use of the microwave the more dirty they become, from lids flying off of Tupperware and leaving behind liquid explosions of mass destruction to flying food debris that plasters itself on every imaginable surface of the microwave. Although microwaves are fast and efficient they can become disgustingly dirty and a chore clean up.

Here is a simple tip that I came across recently....

You need a cheap and easy way to clean your overused greasy microwave oven? Then the answer to all your prayers is in a simple lemon. The days of struggle with removing grease and splatter are coming to an end. Grab a lemon and you’ll solve this issue fast. First, mix a half squeezed lemon juice with a dish of water, approximately 300ml. Mix it well. Then, place the solution in the oven, and turn to the maximum setting and heat for 5-10 minutes. By doing so, the steam will melt some of the grease on the walls and roof of the microwave. Finally, wipe the freshly lemon-scented oven with a soft dishcloth. Your job is done and your microwave is clean.
