Not everyone enjoys using harsh chemicals and strong commercial cleaners when cleaning their homes. I know I try to avoid using certain ingredients and cleaners because my allergies get triggered by them. Plus, it’s not necessary because there are plenty of amazing natural alternatives for cleaning. These “green” cleaning methods are 100% safe and healthy and won’t cause any unwanted side effects. For example, when you use bleach, you have to be careful and protect your eyes and skin in order to avoid irritation and burning. When you use natural ingredients, you know they won’t harm you in any way!
With that being said, today I wanted to share with you how I clean my microwave with just a few natural ingredients. This method is super easy and effective. You have probably heard of it because it has become super popular over the last couple of years – so if you haven’t tried it yet I strongly recommend you follow my instructions so that you can have a spotless appliance in no time!
How I Clean My Microwave With Natural Ingredients?
Now, let’s start with preparing everything you need – a bowl, a sponge, water, one lemon, and vinegar. This is everything you need to deep clean your appliance and loosen up all the burnt food and stubborn stains.
Fill your bowl with water then add a few tablespoons of vinegar. Then cut up a lemon into small pieces and place it in your bowl. Put the bowl in your microwave and heat it for 3-5 minutes. All ingredients will create powerful steam which will loosen up all the impurities. I recommend you do not open the door for at least 3 minutes after the appliance turns off so the steam has time to work its magic.
And then just simply remove the bowl, grab your sponge and start wiping the interior. Thanks to the lemon, you won’t be able to smell the vinegar!
