Dirty Microwaves



If you have a dirty microwave and everything you put in it blew up and now you have a tough mess to clean. Simply cut a lemon in 1/2 and put it in a bowl with some water and microwave for 2-3mins. The steam will loosen the mess and the lemon leaves it smelling wonderfully. Easy to clean no chemicals to smell.

    Lemon makes it smell fresh - thanks! - by IDLETYME
  • I introduced this at work for our community microwaves -- it also eliminates odors. We do have a small cleaning crew (3000 employees, 10 microwaves) who were shown this technique. This eliminated different cleaning standards. This has extended the life of our microwaves. - by HAWKTHREE
