How To Steam Clean Your Microwave Without Cleaners

OK let me first clarify one thing that my microwave doesn't usually look like this, i let this happen so that i can make this post and show the difference..:)...

Many of you might be familiar with this trick but i want to share it for those who might not be aware.

Things You Will Need

A Microwave Safe Bowl


1)Fill the microwave safe bowl with water and add some vinegar in it..( I don't actually measure, i just add a splash of vinegar in a bowl of water, vinegar acts as a freshener and deodorizer. If you don't have vinegar you can use lemon instead just put some slices of lemon in water ).

2)Microwave on high for about 4 minutes .(Time may vary depending upon how dirty the microwave is)

3)Let the steamed bowl sit in the closed microwave for 2-3 minutes.

4)The water will be VERY HOT ,please remove it with precaution, wear oven mitts.

5)After removing the bowl take a damp paper towel, kitchen towel/cloth, or a sponge and wipe clean the inside. It should wipe off very easily.

CAUTION:- If you’re worried about explosions over superheated liquid, you can virtually eliminate the possibility of its happening to you by simply leaving some non-metallic object (such as a wooden spoon or stir stick) in the cup or bowl when you boil liquids in your microwave. It may not be necessary, but it won’t hurt anything either. Peace of mind rarely comes so cheaply. (Tip from Tipnut)

Throw your kitchen sponge or rag in the container with the vinegar water and THEN microwave. You will sterilize your sponge in the process, too!
