Cleaning Your Microwave

To clean the inside of your microwave of splatters of food without any chemicals, fill a soup bowl halfway with water and put in the microwave on high power for five minutes. Let it set for 1 minute. Take the soup bowl out (be careful, it will be hot), then use a wet sponge to wipe away the splatters.


Almost no scrubbing will be necessary. You can cut a lemon or lime and put in the water before putting in the microwave to makes it smell good, but it is not necessary.

Do not use plastic wrap in the microwave, ditto all plastic containers "deemed" safe to nuke. The plastic breaks down and goes into your food. Use corning ware type bowls, cover with wax paper to prevent splatters.
