When dry food and sauce build up on the walls of a microwave oven, not only does it look unpleasant, it is also unsanitary. But, no matter how tough the job seems, getting your microwave oven clean is easier than you think, especially when you use this homemade cleaner.
• 4 tbsp baking soda
• 1 tbsp vinegar
1. In a bowl, combine four tablespoons of baking soda with one tablespoon of vinegar. 2. Mix together until the baking soda and vinegar form a paste.
Before you apply the homemade cleaner, put a cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl or cup. Place it in the microwave oven and heat until the water bowls. Turn off the microwave, and let the water sit for one or two minutes. The steam from the water will help to loosen the dried, caked-on food.
After removing the water, use a moist sponge or cloth to spread the paste around the inside of your microwave oven. Scrub until all the food and debris has been loosened up, then use plain water to rinse off the paste.
