I agreed, actually always agreed with Eco-friendly products those are non-toxic...

LOL!!! Nope, you arent the only one. Nor do I use baking soda or any of the other goofy things some people say work great. I tried them all and none of them performed as well as my regular cleaning agents.

missannienow What I do is this: I use a foam sponge, and buy them at the Dollar Store - $1 for 8. While the interior is still warm, I spray an all purpose cleaner inside. Wait a minute and then use the spone go wipe it all up.

The microwaves that annoy me in my business are the over-the-stove ones. I am short, 5'3", and often cannot reach the back or top without a step stool. And when you clean for profit, that means extra time (time you probably willl not have!) Just finding such a stool may take a while unless the owner is present.

DesperateHousedude I suggest you to fill a bowl with hot water and lemon and microwave it.
The steam will melt the grime and you should be able to wipe everything easily.

JessieG You can clean microwave with lemon.
Cut a lemon in half. Place both halves cut-side down on a microwaveable plate with a tablespoon of water, microwave for about 1 minute, wipe the inside of the microwave with kitchen paper and wash the plate.

I've heard that they don't work very well. I've found the best way to clean a microwave is first by removing loose debris first. Anything that's left caked on can be cleaned up with a damp warm sponge or cloth. You can use a peroxide cleaner to help with trouble areas, should come right up

vipcleaninglondon Boiled water in micowave for a few mins will soft the dirt, then u can easy remove them with damp cloth

aisha369 Hot water always helps with cleaning out the oven. The heat makes the excess dirty easier to wipe off and a mixture of vinegar along with baking soda also goes a long way in cleaning the oven. That's my favourite technique and it always works!

briana26 You need to clean it with a cotton napkin after using it on daily basis. It will save your time.

1844junkrat Use plastic covers that prevent your microwave from dust and other dirty material.

carleymartin Of course, but some times even the old baking soda doesn't help washing the range. I've experimented with everything nevertheless it just turn up, useful info.
