How to clean a microwave oven

I always have trouble cleaning my microwave oven. But the other day I found this tip on my friend’s blog, Made, on how to clean a microwave oven. Here is the translation:

To clean the microwave oven put a cup of water inside and program for one and a half minutes. Leave the cup inside for another minute, oven off. After that clean with a damp cleaning clothe. If you don’t use your oven very often and you do this every other week, it will always be clean.

Thank you Madeline for this useful tip.

  • Thanks for the tip Ben. Now if only I could get my daughter and husand to read it!

  • I always add a squirt of lemon juice to the water. Not sure why… but it is supposed to help 🙂
