On a recent trip home I was telling Mom about the awesome new way I cleaned my microwave. Mom suggested I demonstrate the technique with her microwave. She’s tricky like that.
Fill a dish with one part vinegar and one part water. Place it in your microwave and cook for two minutes.
Dip a rag in the hot solution and wipe out the inside of the microwave. Be careful, it’s hot!
Baked-on crud comes right off with no elbow grease. See?
I’m always happy when I can clean without chemicals. Although I prefer to not clean all.
Don’t you agree? :)

Two thumbs up to that!
Thanks Kayla, never thought of using vinegar tho’ I use it for lots for other sorts of cleaning; I do exactly like you did except I use a lemon cut in two in water in a glass jug; nuke for 2 minutes then let it stand for a few minutes to let the steam loosen the “stuck on bits” and also let the water cool a little so I can put my fingers safely into the water, then I wipe out microwave with a clean dry cloth; if I need an extra bit of elbow grease especially for the corners I carefully squeeze a little lemon and use a cheap toothbrush and scrub then wipe clean!
THanks, I’ll try this tomorrow.
Thanks for this tip!! I’m now going to my kitchen and clean my microwave! :)
Oh yah… I definitely agree!
Off to try this in my dad’s microwave – the only way he cooks dinner!!!
Worked great!!! Thank you :)
Thanks so much for this tip, Kayla. I’m trying it this morning because i have a microwave that needs cleaning, and i also hate to use the elbow grease to do it.
I do this only with lemon juice rather than the vinegar.
