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.

The best way would be to clean your microwave. Scrub it rly hard with something that smells fresh and nice. Then your microwave will smell fresh instead of stinky fish.

A great easy and natural way to clean a microwave is use vinegar to soak stains using a sponge. Let the vinegar soak and the scrub the microwave and wipe clean. Vinegar evaporates on its own so there is won't be any residue.

No, the best way to clean a microwave is to fill a plastic container(suitable for microwave) halfway with water and place in microwave on full power for about 8-10 mins, when finished carefully remove container (will be very hot) and wipe out microwave with a damp cloth, all grease and baked in food should come off.

Yes you can use vinegar but the best way to clean the micro is put a small bowl of water in it and turn it on about 2 minutes. The steam will soften food and wipe clean easily.

The best way is naturally. Just defecate normally and you're good to go. Enemas can help if you really need to. Laxatives will also clean you out, but you'll be stuck on the toilet for most of a day.

The best possible way would be to purchase the microwave online direct from the manufacturer. Also, dont purchase a larger microwave than you actually need.

The best mountable microwave oven is the one that best suites your needs. Some of the things to take into considerationa are: 1.) the higher the wattage the faster things cook, 2.) The more space in the microwave, the bigger things you can cook, and 3.) the less wattage and less space, the cheaper the microwave can be.

The best way to soften apples in a microwave is to slice them up and take out the seeds and core. After this, put them in a microwave safe container and heat them up.

If you want the resin, put it in a bowl, cover it with water and microwave it for 1 minute. If you just want a clean pipe, take a teaspoon of coarse salt and some rubbing alcohol, mix it together and pour it into your pipe. Shake it around for a while, and viola, you should have a clean pipe.

The best microwave is a subjective term because different families have different needs. Use a consumer review panel to check out how happy people are with there models.

My best guess is that the particles weaken.

YOu could but its best to cook it on the stove just to be safe because in the microwave it could turn out pretty bad.

A compact countertop like the Sharp R930AW Countertop Microwave would work great for a dorm.
