Tips and Tricks # 1

In August, I wrote you about Battling the Microwave which really had more to do with Baby Kaz than the microwave itself.  However, I decided (after some pressure from Leah) to share some tips and tricks I have with you….and this one goes perfectly if you too are battling your microwave.  Not only does the food you are cooking in it smell up the house, but so does whatever else has bubbled over and crusted in your microwave. Don’t act like yours is spotless, you may wipe it out when there is a spill but you know there is grossness in there.  What stinks is trying to spray random cleaners in there to soak it, or scrubbing until your arms feel like they have been shoveling snow all day. Let me help.

dsc_0355_edited-1  You will need a bowl of water, a lemon cut in half and well…..a microwave.  Now, get ready for the easiest cleaning of your life.

1. Squeeze the juice of one half of a lemon into the water. (Yes, it is fine if the seeds get in there.)

2. Put the bowl of lemon water into the microwave and microwave on high for 1 minute.  The steam of the water has acid from the lemon in it and it will coat the sides of your microwave. 

3. At the end of the minute, take a paper towel and wipe down the sides with ease.

4. Repeat the one minute process and squeeze more lemon juice in it, if it is really bad as many times as you need to keep wiping it down.  I promise you will not have to scrub and in the end you will have a shiny, lemony fresh microwave.

You Are Welcome.
