Intro: Clean a Microwave
If you've had to make a mad dash to your kitchen because you think a guest is about to use your dirty microwave, this is the Instructable for you! Just Imagine that in about 5 minutes from now you can have a completely clean microwave...without using any harsh cleaning products! Soon your microwave won't have any more dirty little secrets...
Let's get started!
Step 1: Steaming
In a glass bowl, pour 1 cup of white vinegar and place into your microwave. Set microwave on hi for 4 minutes.
After the 4 minutes are over, don't open the microwave door for another 2 minutes. This will allow the entire inside to "steam" and subsequently, loosen any caked-on grime from the walls and roof.
Note: If you're microwave is a special kind of dirty, you may want to run it twice for 4 minutes.
Step 2: Scrubbing
Using the softer side of a sponge, lightly scrub the entire interior of the microwave. This step doesn't involve much elbow grease on your part. Since there is probably a good bit of condensation inside, you might need to wring out the sponge of couple times in the sink.
Step 3: Drying
After you're satisfied with the lack of gross, grab a paper towel and dry the inside completely.
You're microwave is now clean and happy to be opened by anyone!
