Clean Your Microwave With A Lemon – Amazing Life Hack

29 March, 2014

It can be an absolute pain to clean your microwave.

If yours is anything like mine, it takes little time between cleans for it to end up all mucky again.  Kitchen sprays don’t make the job any easier either.  The food spills are normally cooked on and not about to leave easily.

There is a great way to have your microwave sparkling again though.  All you need is a bowl of water and a sliced lemon.

Too easy you say?  Nope not at all.

Simply, place a bowl of  water with the sliced lemon floating on top, in the microwave for 12 minutes.

At the end of the 12 minutes let the bowl to sit for another 12 minutes in the microwave cooling.  This allows the steamy lemon water to soften the baked on food.

Once the bowl is cool enough, remove it from the microwave and then begin to wipe out interior with a soft damp cloth.  The food spills should remove easily.  Leaving a lovely clean and lemony fresh smelling microwave.
