One task that no one really enjoys doing very much is cleaning their microwave; however, it’s something that should always be done on a regular basis in order to not only help maintain it, but also ensure that food made in it tastes great as well.

Here are three different ways that you can clean your microwave.

Baking Soda

This is useful for removing cooked-on spills. Using one part water to two parts baking soda, make a paste and apply it to the affected area, allowing it to sit for approximately five minutes. Use a wet cloth or sponge to wipe it up, then use a paper towel to remove any leftover residue.

Dishwashing Soap

To use this method, put warm water into a microwave-safe bowl, then add an ample amount of dishwashing soap. Place the bowl into the microwave for one minute or until the microwave begins to steam. Remove it, then use a damp sponge to wash the inside of the microwave.

Water and Vinegar Mixture

Using a microwave-safe bowl, fill it halfway with water, then add one tablespoon of white vinegar. Next, microwave on high for about five minutes, as this will create steam on the walls of the microwave, thereby loosening cooked-on food. Remove the bowl from the microwave carefully and wipe the inside of the microwave down with either a paper towel or clean rag. Next, remove the turntable and wash it like a normal dish.
