That Dirty Microwave.

Well No More!!!! Here is another handy cleaning tip for you guys -Straight from The Smithocracy.

One of the worst chores ever is cleaning the microwave. It is so annoying that most people put it off until it is covered in more food then you are heating up. Well this is a simple way to get that gross grime off. I have used this method for over 8 years. So it is tried and true.

The short version.

Fill a bowl with water and microwave for 20 minutes. Wipe out with sponge.

Now for the long and more visual explanation.

First you need a dirty microwave.


Now I know that the microwave does not seem THAT dirty. However it took me forever to get my microwave this dirty and I didn’t want to wait any longer. This method works so great, that my microwave is always clean. So I had to tell everyone to start on purpose letting their food explode. So this is as good as it gets folks.

But lets pretend that this is more like College Microwave dirty. You know. Red-hot-pocket-sauce-crusted-allover dirty. Maybe yours is not so clean right now and you are feeling a little guilty. So that brings me to the next thing you need.

A microwavable bowl filled with water and some lemon juice. Although you don’t really even need the lemon juice. It just makes it smell nice.

Fill up your bowl about half way. I think I have about 2 quarts there. And then I just pour some lemon juice in. Maybe like 2 or 3 tablespoons.

Next stick the bowl in the microwave.

And microwave on high for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile you can load the dishwasher, or wipe the counters, or read a book. That is really up to you.

Once the 20 minutes is up you remove the bowl and just wipe out the microwave with a sponge.

It really is that easy. You just wipe it off.

And then it’s beautiful!

So easy. Now you have no excuse for putting it off any longer. You can have a clean and lemony microwave too!
