Sometimes we end up with tough baked on food stuck to the walls, ceiling and floor of our microwave, so hard that you almost need a chisel to get it off. Try this next time.
Good idea, I also read to use vinegar to clean microwaves. Have done it a few times. Just put some vinegar in a glass bowl and turn on the microwave for a minute or two. Let it run its cycle, and then let it sit for only 5 minutes or so. Take the sponge and start working on the gunk, it removes quite easily.
Why not toss your gently used kitchen sponge in to get lemon-refreshed, too? I'll try it sometime. I'm in the habit of cleaning the insides/outsides of all appliances when I do dishes, so I just don't seem to ever have a significant buildup. : )

This is an easy, inexpensive way to clean the inside of your microwave. We all know how we can sometimes neglect this. I have tried every product out there, but this is the best way I have found to do it. Just put a few inches of water into a microwave-safe bowl and add a little lemon juice to it. Now, microwave this on HI for about 2 minutes. You will have condensation from this on the inside of the microwave and you just wipe it down with a paper towel or wash cloth. The food splatters, etc. will just wipe right off. I do this all of the time. I hope this helps someone!
