The inside of my microwave looks like the Valentine Day massacre with splattered sauce and some of these stains do seem to defy the laws of gravity . Every short cut points at the not so humble lemon , oooh but alas I used my last lemon in a Gin and Tonic , such is life. Everyone knows phrase
"If life gives you lemons then first clean your microwave "
All I had was vinegar ! everyone is aware of the cleaning benefits of vinegar .
This cleaning technique was the best 5 minutes of my life except that time when I thought I'd won something on the lottery. Here is the horror scene that was my microwave before I got all domestic and decided to clean , I do apologise if you're getting twitchy looking at this .
Fill either a microwave bowl or jug with at least 2 cup worth of water
2 Tablespoons of vinegar
A squeeze of lemon juice > the one that's shaped like a lemon ( your lemon juice doesn't have to be contained in a lemon )
Place the bowl / jug in the microwave and shut the door !!
Then microwave for 5 minutes , please be careful when opening the door !
You could if you wish let the steam work for a further 2 minutes .
Wash the glass turntable and dry , return the glass turntable to the microwave
You should then have a sparkling clean microwave .
