Fear no more! Cleaning your microwave is probably the easiest chore to tackle in your apartment home. Eliminate stubborn grime with this simple method.
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Pour equal parts vinegar and water into the bowl. Measuring a half a cup of each liquid is good enough. For a deeper clean you can use one cup water and one cup vinegar.
- Place the bowl in the microwave and heat for five to ten minutes, depending on how dirty the microwave is. When the timer beeps, leave the bowl in the microwave for a few minutes to let the steam work its magic.
- The bowl will be hot! Take it out of the microwave with oven mitts. Dip a sponge into the bowl of water and vinegar, and wipe the inside of the microwave clean. You probably won’t even need the help of a sponge… the steam should make everything disappear with a quick swipe of a paper towel.
