Whenever stains and residue builds up, give this workhorse kitchen appliance a thorough cleaning with this fast routine from Michael Dimopoulos, a and the founder of Lazy Susans Cleaning.
- Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a bowl and place the bowl in the center of your empty microwave.
- Turn your microwave on high for 2 minutes. After the microwave has filled with steam, use a damp cloth to wipe down the inside.
If your microwave needs further attention and cleaning, use a combination of baking soda and dish soap to wipe down the interior.
To clean the exterior of the microwave, wipe down the front door with your go-to cleaning solution. And if you own a stainless steel microwave, remove smudges on the exterior with a small amount of coconut spray and a paper towel.
