Clean Your Microwave With Fruit
It's worth learning how to clean a microwave, no matter how conscientious you are about watching your nuked lunch. Luckily, cleaning the microwave is quick and easy.
Apartment Therapy recommends the natural method, which is probably also the best smelling. First, clean the crumbs out of the microwave. Next, fill a microwave-safe bowl with a cup or two of water. Add some lemon juice or a slightly squeezed half lemon to the bowl (some people use a couple of tablespoons of vinegar instead of the lemon). Now nuke it! Microwave that for a few minutes until the water is boiling. Keep the door closed afterward to let the steam work its magic loosening dried-on food. After a few minutes, wipe down the inside of the microwave with a damp cloth. Food splatters should come off easily. Wipe down the outside of the microwave with a kitchen cleaner and you're finished!
TV dinner, anyone?
