HOW TO CLEAN A MICROWAVE WITHOUT HARSH CHEMICALS!
Before I explain what you need and the method, allow me to stop the pretty pictures and show you reality… He is my microwave BEFORE this fabulous, all natural deep clean that I gave it. Excuse the feralness (yes, I made that word up) 😉 but in order for me to test out whether this works my microwave had to be filthy and I would love to tell you that it’s never this gross… but it does get like this …. But NOT after I did this fabulous deep clean!
Here she is… the before!
Yep… it’s gross and I’m ashamed…
Your ingredients are minimal. All you will need are: A few lemons, a bowl of water and a large splash of white vinegar. As an added option you can add a couple of drops of lemon essential oil to make your microwave smell even more amazing! But I find the lemons on their own do this perfectly.
Here’s How To Clean A Microwave Without Harsh Chemicals!
Slice your lemons and add them to a bowl of water.
Add a large stash of white vinegar (I added about 4-5 tablespoons because I love to over do the vinegar thing with all my cleaning!) haha
Add a couple of drops of lemon oil into the mix (optional)
Place in the microwave and turn the microwave for 5-10 minutes. I did 5 minutes.
Once the microwave beeps, turn off but do not open the microwave door. Leave the lemon mix in the microwave and let it stand for an additional 5 minutes so that the heat can stay in the microwave and it can steam the inside and soften all the food and stains.
After the 5 minutes is up, open the microwave door and remove the blow of lemons. Please make sure to be careful as the bowl will be boiling hot.
Get a clean and damp cloth and wipe out all of the softened food and stains. Give it all a good wipe over.
Now your microwave is super clean, sterilised AND smells AMAZING and you don’t have to stand around and use or smell harsh chemicals and it’s even easier to clean!
I do this all the time and absolutely love it!
So now you know how to clean a microwave the easiest and most environmentally friendly way!
