This microwave cleaning hack is my go-to way to clean our microwave. I love finding easy ways to clean our kitchen. I try to clean it as often as I can, because it really needs cleaned CONSTANTLY with six people in our family.
It is VERY easy and you don’t really have to do a lot of work.
What you need:
– Bowl of water (about 1/2 cup of water)
– 8 drops of Lemon Essential Oils (sometimes I switch it up and do LemonGrass because I love that smell!)
-1 teaspoon vinegar (this is optional. It works better with vinegar, but if you don’t have it- that’s ok.)
– Damp cloth (or sponge)
Put the oil into the bowl of water and microwave it on high for about five minutes. Let it sit for about 4-5 MORE minutes (because it will be hot and because you want the steam to continue to do the work).
The lemon steam will loosen everything in the microwave and you simply have to wipe it with a damp cloth or damp sponge to remove all of the food.
PS- You can use your lemon oil for many things! Check out some other ideas here:
Vinegar has many uses, too:
When you are finished with your microwave – head over to clean your refrigerator!
