Spring Cleaning-The Microwave

Hi!  Welcome to the second post in our Spring Cleaning series!  Yesterday I talked about giving the inside of your oven a good cleaning and gave you my recipe for a homemade oven cleaner (only 3 ingredients that I'm sure you already have in your house!)  You can view that post here.

Today we will tackle the microwave-possibly the EASIEST kitchen appliance to clean ever!! Now, this is definitely a space that needs cleaning more than just once a year, but it is simple enough that you can incorporate it into your regular cleaning routine.  So even though it is not Spring specific, I did want to include it in this series (mainly because mine was in dire need of being cleaned anyways!)

-To start, mix equal parts water and white vinegar into a microwavable bowl or cup.  I used 1/2 Cup of each.  
-Microwave until the mixture is boiling-this was around 2 minutes for 1 total cup of liquid for me.  
-Leave the mixture in the microwave with the door closed for another couple of minutes.  
-Remove the mixture and simply wipe off all the nastiness that has splattered all around your microwave! 

I do take the turn table out and wash it with dish soap in the sink, but if you are short on time, just wipe it off with everything else. 

Here are my before pictures:




Add your 'magic' solution:


And Ta-Da!






Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you will stick around as we conquer some other areas of our homes this Spring!

    1. To be honest with you I am not sure! I have never tried it with that, I have only used white vinegar. I would think you might should get the same results though...if you give it a try I would love to hear how it turns out! Thanks for coming by :)
