Picture of Make Lemonade and clean your microwave
You can easily clean your microwave and make lemonade, at the same time.
In this Instructable, Microwave oven will be called a Microwave.  I know Microwaves are different than Microwave ovens,just like drill motors are different than drills, but most people refer to them as drills just like most people refer to Microwave ovens as Microwaves.  (This should keep my Grandfather happy)

If you put a lemon in the microwave for 10 sec it will give more juice.

Hi! I'm house sitting and yesterday I used this method on a microwave that the house owners have never cleaned. Ever. It was like a Jackson Pollock if his medium with chef Boyardee and cheese.

It worked like magic! I put it in for 5 minutes and kept the door closed for ten. Gave it a wipe, and the brown microwave was actually white! Amazing.

Also, your instructable was particularly great, thanks!

TY Sir!!

Hilarious. I think all my future instructables will have to include "contemplate" steps.

I particularly like the bit about 3 minutes, 14 seconds.

I voted for it and will be sad when you win my laser cutter.

I am glad you liked it. I was hoping someone on Instructables would get my geometry humor. Thanks for the vote. It will be sad, when I win your laser cutter, but I'll cut and burn something on it for you, once I get it.

Thanks for the comment, I look forward to seeing your next Instructable with contemplative steps.

Hilarious and very useful- awesome integration of unrelated activities- true genius!
CHARLESCRANFORD (author)  paganwonder3 years ago
May be unrelated, but one of those accidents that lead to discovery. I like to microwave my lemon juice so the sugar dissolves completely. Just so happens the steam created, cleans perfectly, smells good, and is environmentally friendly. If I have to wait for my lemonade to cool, I might as well make use of the time and clean the microwave. Not even close to the story of how the microwave oven was accidentally invented.

Thanks for the comment,

Thanks for the complement. Be sure to put lemons on your shopping list.
Already on there! Thanks! Lemons are a great thing to keep on hand. I always run out.
