Guide to Clean a Microwave from Inside with a Lemon
When life throughs you lemons, it’s time to clean your Microwave.
First Step: Measure the Water
The first step is to pour about half a cup of water into a measuring cup – keep in mind that it is microwave-safe.
Second Step: Add Citrus
Cut the lemon in half and squeeze it into the water. Drop the leftover lemon halves into that cup or bowl.
Third Step: Microwave it
Now put this cup in your microwave. Remember to keep your microwave on high power for 3 minutes so that the liquid comes to a boil.
Fourth Step: Leave it for 5 Minutes
Next is to leave it for 5 minutes. But, don’t open the microwave door so that the inside steam will loosen the food gunk of your microwave.
Fifth Step: Clean the Microwave
Now you have to open the door of your microwave. Remember to carefully take out the cup with the leftover lemon halves. Then, lift out the microwave rotating plate and wipe it clean.
Wipe the microwave’s inner side, starting with cleaning its ceiling and then the sides. Don’t forget to wipe the microwave door.
Sixth Step: Scrub the Leftover Stains
Last but not least, make sure to remove the stubborn spots by dipping the corner of your microfiber cloth in the lemon water and scrubbing until the spot disappears.
Seventh Step: Replace the Turntable
Finally, place the turntable back and you’re good to go — with a spotless microwave and also a delightful citrus fragrance!
