Dirty Microwave…. Clean it up with Vinegar


Our microwave always seems to get dirty and stay dirty because we never seem to clean it when we make a mess. Today I was doing some research to try and find an easy way to clean our microwave. One item seemed to always pop up to help clean the microwave and that was vinegar. I felt really dumb for not thinking about it before because I use vinegar all the time to clean many different things around the house, and in cloth diaper laundry.

To clean your microwave all you will need it a measuring cup, water, vinegar, and a wash cloth.DSC01754

All you need to do is combine 1.5 cups of water and .5 cup of vinegar into a measuring cup, sit it in your microwave and microwave it for 6 to 10 mins.

Our microwave was pretty dirty so I set the microwave for 8 mins.

After the microwave timer goes off, be careful and take out the measuring cup. CAUTION: It will be HOT!  Take a wet wash cloth and wipe down your microwave. You shouldn’t have to use a lot of elbow grease, if so put the measuring cup back in the microwave and set the timer for little longer.

Once you have wiped it all down, you’re done!

Tip: I dipped my wash cloth into the vinegar and water solution and wiped down the microwave. DSC01756
