Five Minute Fix: Cleaning the Microwave with Lemons

I 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.

  1. Put some water in a microwave safe bowl
  2. Cut a lemon in half
  3. Squeeze juice into water
  4. Put lemon halves in water
  5. Nuke for 2 minutes
  6. Keep door closed for 5 minutes after it’s done running
  7. Wipe the microwave down with a sponge

Seriously — it doesn’t get easier or faster than that.
