Day 10, Microwave
After the refrigerator, is there any kitchen appliance used as often as the microwave? Of course, this means that food is often splattered on the walls and ceilings of the microwave. To remedy this, a two-minute microwave of a bowl filled with the same vinegar and water solution mentioned earlier will work. If you need extra cleaning power, add a few lemon slices. Be sure you let the mixture sit in the microwave for another 45 seconds before removing. Finally, just dip a sponge in the hot solution, and your microwave will wipe clean with virtually no effort.
Wiping out the microwave with a damp cloth after each use will keep it clean. For added freshness, occasionally microwave a bowl of water with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice for one minute.
