Cleaning The Inside of your Microwave

To clean your microwave, take a bowl of water and had a half cup of lemon juice. Place in microwave for 3 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes or so to loosen the dirt inside and wipe clean. This makes all the dirt and grime come off a lot easier.

Since lemons are quite expensive, I certainly would not wastethe juice or the zest on cleaning a microwave oven, not when you can accomplish the same thing with the rind once the juice has been squeezed out, and the zest scraped off to use in cooking or baking. Then just add the used rinds to a bowl of water, and nuke it for 3 minutes...and let it sit for 5 or more

minutes. It will do the trick and you'll still have your lemon juice to make lemonade.

If you don't have lemons, just add a few TBS of apple cider vinegar to the water and clean the microwave the same way.

Just plain warm water with apple cider vinegar added will clean cabinet doors, and countertops very well. If you need any type of abrasive help, use baking soda.
