Keeping Microwave Clean

This Sparked Me!

To keep the microwave clean, we use coffee filters to cover bowls of soup, oatmeal, etc. It's cheaper and easier than plastic wrap or wax paper. It's cheaper than paper towels, too. We also have a "tupperware-type" dome that can be used over and over again, but it does have to be cleaned with things that splatter, so the coffee filters are perfect for splatter items!

    This is a great idea. I should encourage my co-workers to do it. The work microwave is always a science project.

    I never thought of Coffee filters. Neater that the paper towel and smaller so it will stay on the plate.
