How sad is it when you can get so excited for an easy way to clean the microwave. Has everyone known about this and failed to tell me? I had heard of a Mr. Clean product several years ago that supposedly worked wonders. I've been looking at all the local stores for one, couldn't find it, so resorted to the internet for research. I tried one that looked simple enough and would you believe it worked!?
Put about 2 cups of water in a pyrex measuring cup or something similar. Add about 2 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice. Put in the microwave and nuke for 2 -3 minutes. Wipe clean with paper towels. The steam created makes the ick come off the top, sides and bottom of the microwave a cinch. The juice makes it smell so clean! I did have to take the tray out and wash in the sink, but the other was clean in literally 2 minutes! Whew! It was so easy. Maybe now I won't have butter/margarine stalagtites on the ceiling of my microwave anymore! Plus for all you "greenies" out there, no chemicals were used or harmed in the cleaning of this microwave!
