Wipe out excess crumbs from the microwave's interior, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1-2 cups water.(For a fresh smell, add some lemon juice to the water before heating) then heat the water to boiling, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully remove bowl; remove tray from microwave, set aside. Wipe the interior of the microwave with a damp cloth. Wash tray in with dish soap, dry and return to microwave. Hope that I helped

I just wipe it clean after I used it and then only if food has sprayed all over it. Easier that way as the food is still 'soft' and easy to wipe clean just with a sponge and hot water.

you are right but I myself can't do it every time I use it. what when I've invited guests. I can't clean when they are at home. the idea with the steam is interesting. I simply use detergent

I guess the easiest way to keep it clean then would be to cover whatever you are reheating in some sort of plastic wrap. That will stop the food from spraying everywhere.

It's never late to invent a protector for the oven for example

Smile Paper Towel

I like to use a paper towel, it soaks up the grease

To clean heavily discolored brass items – great for outside door furniture.

Cut a lemon in half – pour a good quantity of table salt on the exposed lemon surface. Use the lemon as a ‘cleaning pad’ on the brass item. Add more salt if you need to as you go along. Wash off with warm soap and water.


Doesn’t seem to do any harm to surrounding paintwork or wood and doesn’t leave white stains like commercial brass polish products.

Add lemon, salt, vinegar... then lettuce, slices cucumber, tomatoes and here you go. You'll have a good salad. Seriously - am I the only one who doesn't use salt and lemon when cleaning?

the good old vinegar and baking soda are working great in these cases

Yes,but sometimes even the good old baking soda doesn't help cleaning the oven. I've tried everything but it just doesn't work

Here some advice.

Use some Eco friendly cleaning coz Green products reduce exposure to potentially toxic chemicals compared to their chemical based cousins.

Thanks for the advice, but I like the idea for a new oven more. I think that's what I'm going to do.

  1. Wipe out excess crumbs from the microwave's interior.
  2. Fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1-2 cups water.
  3. Heat the water to boiling, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove bowl; remove tray from microwave, set aside.
  5. With a damp cloth, wipe the interior of the microwave.
  6. Wash tray in the sink with dish soap. Dry and return to microwave.
  7. For the exterior, spray with kitchen cleaner, wipe off with paper towels.
