ignored put off cleaning the microwave for far longer than I care to admit. It was disgusting. Finally when something reached out and grabbed my arm last night after using it I decided it was time to acknowledge the filth.
I remembered a trick I used to use back in the day for cleaning the microwave — something about lemons — but forgot the exact science. It could wait another day.
So this morning while I was wandering around aimlessly looking for something productive to do I remembered the disaster in the microwave. I quickly googled “lemon to clean microwave.”
Boom! It was easy as I remembered.
- Put some water in a microwave safe bowl
- Cut a lemon in half
- Squeeze juice into water
- Put lemon halves in water
- Nuke for 2 minutes
- Keep door closed for 5 minutes after it’s done running
- Wipe the microwave down with a sponge
Seriously — it doesn’t get easier or faster than that.
