I usually use vinegar when I clean my microwave or fridge. I mix it with water and heat it in the microwave and then wipe it out and you are done. And since you already have the vinegar and water warmed up, I also clean my fridge with it. I am against using chemicals in the kitchen because I believe that they can contaminate the food. When I worked at a grocery store we had a customer who wanted to sue the store for selling bad milk because it would always turn pink and sour when she bought it. We had the milk tested at the store and the milk we sold was fine, but they also tested the milk at the customer's home and found out that she used too many aggressive chemicals and that they reacted with the milk.

A few nontoxic kitchen cleaners can bring a sparkle back to your fridge and oven. By Jean Nick
Cleaning grubby microwaves is easy! Spray the insides with your nontoxic spray, put a cup of water in a microwave-safe container in the center of the microwave, microwave on high until the water boils (in mine, that takes two minutes), and then wait 10 minutes. Use the microwave's timer to keep track. When it beeps, use a sponge to wipe the microwave clean. If any stubborn stains remain, repeat the process but add a splash of vinegar to the water before heating it.
If that didn't work, try this trick for cleaning your microwave with a lemon!
