{Spring Cleaning} The Microwave


Happy April all! I don't know what it is about this time of year, but it puts me into Spring cleaning mode. I have the need to clean everything lately. I want to organize, clean and redecorate. The cleaning bug has bitten me and is going strong. I have been focusing on the kitchen as of late. I kicked off my kitchen cleaning with the microwave. I forgot to take a before. It wasn't horrible. I usually clean it out every other week, but this time I cleaned under and all around. I tried to make sure it was super clean.

Want to know my secret to easy cleaning, where the microwave is concerned? Oven cleaner. Spray it into the microwave and let it sit for a few minutes. All the grim will just wipe off. It was so simple. I had to share.

Now my microwave is white and clean.
Until the Hubbs gets his hand on it at least

  3. Yikes! I am feeling guilty seeing these Spring Cleaning posts...honestly, that bug has not bit me yet but when it DOES (or the microwave gets to gross to bear) I will try this great tip that you shared with us. I saw your post over at Ta-Da Tuesday.

  4. Here's an easy, non-chemical way to clean the microwave: Fill a mug with water and then put in about 2 or 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Microwave for about 5 minutes. Then just wipe off. It'll look brand-new.

    For the stove top, you can make a paste of salt and water, apply it liberally, leave it for about 5 minutes, and again, just wipe off - it gets rid of everything.

  6. this is awesome. I never would have thought of using that!

    When I first saw the picture of your microwave, I though "ew it's still nasty"...then I realized my toddler had wiped peanut butter on my computer screen, so I was seeing brown chunks against the whiteness of the microwave lol I'm so glad it's clean:)

  7. I nuke a wet dishrag for about a couple of minutes. When the timer goes off, I let it sit for another minute or so then use the nuked rag that has cooled off a lil to wipe the interior. Baked & caked on crud comes off with ease. Bonus is if you wet the rag then pour a tbsp of lemon juice into the rag before nuking to make your micro smell fresh & clean :)

  8. I put a tablespoon or two of baking soda mixed with a cup of water in there for about 30 seconds. It loosens everything up and you just wipe it out. Also, the baking soda helps neutralize any odors. I learned this on that show with the British cleaning ladies....I can't remember the name right now.
