You wipe down your counters, scrub your sink and shine your stainless steel refrigerator like it’s your job — but your kitchen's dirty little secret is right inside your microwave. Busted.
What You’ll Need
Bowl (microwave safe)
Get To Work
1. In the microwave safe bowl, mix half a cup of vinegar with half a cup of water.
2. Heat the water/vinegar mixture for 5-10 minutes. The dirtier the microwave, the longer you heat.
3. Keep the bowl in the microwave for a few minutes to steam.
4. After a few minutes, remove the bowl (careful, it’s hot!), then dip your sponge in the vinegar water and give your microwave a good scrub. By this point, the dry, hardened bits of mystery food and grease should wipe up easily and hassle-free.
