The Lazy Way to Clean Your Microwave: One of my favorite, laziest methods is to take a microwavable bowl of hot water, fill it with half-cut lemons or a good dash of lemon juice and zap it at full power in the oven for about 5-10 minutes. While doing this, make sure you do not let the water boil dry! You should then find that this has effectively steam-cleaned the insides of the microwave.
The next part of the cleaning process is then to carefully take out the bowl and wipe out any of the softened food particles from inside the oven with a damp cloth. This method could not be simpler, leaves you microwave smelling fresh and, best of all, is completely non-toxic.
You can also use a bowlful of, our old friend white-vinegar as an alternative. You will be amazed how useful this stuff is for household cleaning – more on that later!
Zap this for five minutes only but make sure to avoid using malt-vinegar because this will make your oven smell truly awful after microwaving!
