Clean Your Microwave with Lemon

Why Do This?

Is that leftover chicken parmesan on the side of your microwave? Very appetizing! Don’t worry, you don’t need to spring for store-bought cleaners to spruce up the inside of your trusty microwave. All you need is a lemon. This trick will remove unsightly stains and caked-on food, and the best part is that it only takes five minutes!

Difficulty:
Time: 5 minutes

What You'll Need

  • lemon
  • sponge

How To:

  1. 1

    Put 1 cup of water and a 5 lemon slices in a microwave-safe bowl. Tip: No lemons? Lemon juice works just as well.

  2. 2

    Heat the bowl in the microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, or until boiling.

  3. 3

    Wait two minutes before opening the microwave door. This is the most important part! Keeping the door closed will allow the steam to loosen food particles. Bonus: The lemon will also add a fresh scent to your kitchen.

  4. 4

    Carefully remove the bowl of water and wipe down the inside of the microwave with a warm, damp sponge. The caked-on food and stains should come off easily.
