Lemon In The Microwave
There are just a few simple steps to clean and freshen your microwave with the power of lemon. Here’s what you need for the job:
Steps To Clean The Microwave
Once you have your supplies, follow these simple steps to clean your microwave:
- Cut the lemon into halves or slices
- Place the cut lemon into a small, microwave-safe bowl
- Cover the lemon with at least one cup of water
- Put the bowl of water and lemon into the microwave
- Run the microwave on high power for 4 minutes
Important: when the microwave stops running, do not open it! Leave it closed and let the heat and steam from the water and lemon work some true magic on that dirty microwave. Give it at least 10 minutes before you open the microwave.
Finish Cleaning The Microwave
Open the microwave after 10-15 minutes, and it’s now ready for the final steps. Just remove the bowl of lemon water. If the microwave was especially dirty, use paper towels to wipe out most of the muck. Thanks to the power of lemon, heat and steam, this should be easy!
After most of the yuck is wiped out, use a microfiber cloth to put the finishing touches on this cleaning job. Don’t forget to be amazed at how clean your microwave is! Guess what? You can also use lemon to freshen up your dishwasher!
