Use Lemon for Cleaning Microwave

Found a dried up old lemon in your crisper? Don't toss it! Cut it up, put it in a bowl of water, and heat in the microwave for a minute of so. Leave it in the microwave for several minutes to let the micro get good and steamy inside. When you open the door wipe down the inside and enjoy a fresher Nuker!

Clean the build-up of grease from inside your microwave: put a bowl of water with half a lemon squeezed into it in the oven for 30 seconds. Then use the hot lemon water to rub down the sides of the microwave. The lemon will neutralize smells. This really works!
