We try our hardest to keep our microwave clean by covering any food that could splatter with a paper towel. But, it's just a fact of life that your microwave will get dirty.
Rather than spend a lot of time trying to scrub the gunk out of the microwave, you can use this easy to trick to clean your microwave in less than 10 minutes with no scrubbing required.
What you'll need:
- Microwave-safe Cup with Water
- 2 tablespoons Distilled White Vinegar
Add 2 tbsps of vinegar to a cup of water and add a toothpick to the top (to allow the water to boil) and microwave for 5 minutes. Let the cup sit for 2 minutes before opening the door. Carefully pull the cup from the microwave (since it's hot!).
Then use a cloth or paper towel to wipe up any food spills in the microwave. The steam from the water and vinegar has softened everything up, so it should come right off.
If you have a large mess, you can always microwave the same cup a second time to get everything moist again.
