Cleaning a microwaveMy favorite way is to use a Mr. Clean magic eraser. Just wet it and wipe nothing but water needed.

Fill a small casserole or microwaveable bowl with a mixture of water and lemon juice (approx 2 cups water and 2 tbsp lemon juice, but it's flexible). Put it in the microwave uncovered, and run the microwave for 7-10 minutes - the microwave should run long enough that the water boils for at least five minutes.

This will cover the inside of the microwave with a water droplets, and the food particles will wipe right off.

More advice from Wiki s contributors:

  • Put apple vinegar or white vinegar in a small bowl. Then microwave for 5 minutes. Then simply wipe with a damp cloth. (NON-TOXIC)
  • Put sliced lemons into a bowl of very hot water and put in microwave. Turn it on for several minutes. When you pull it out, the food particles will have softened and the microwave will also smell great.
  • The answers are good. I had a microwave with 2 years of grime and I sprayed Fantastic with Oxypower on it. I mean soaked it. Let it sit for like five minutes and it came off like magic without even having to really scrub. And a Mr. Clean eraser.
  • I just soak 3 paper towels with any normal kitchen cleaner spray,or even Windex and microwave for 1 min, then I wipe clean w/the paper towels and it works every time.
  • I clean microwaves with spray Windex with ammonia in it, just spray the microwave and let it soak a little while, but remember to leave the door open while soaking,use hot dish detergent soap water in the sink, and wash out very well, and once it's clean, go back and spray the microwave with the Windex and paper towels will wipe and shine inside and outside. You can also put some water in a bowl with about 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Let the water boil in the microwave. This somehow loosens the food that has been baked on.
  • These are all excellent answers. As I am cleaning my counter or table I just use the rag I have and dampen it and throw it in the microwave for about 20 seconds and then use the rag to wipe the microwave. I do it about once a week. Careful the rag will be hot...
  • Mix vinegar and water in spray bottle and soak inside of microwave...after few minutes, the food, etc. will soften and cleaning is much easier..and non-toxic!!!--after all, this is where you place food.
