I guess this might be the start of a spring cleaning series of posts. I wanted to post my microwave clean up trick in response to a great question from Kara on the Range hood post. I have not tried goo gone on my microwave, but what I have tried is water. Yep, plain old tap water. Many of you probably already know this one, but if you don't , YOU SHOULD!
Fill a mug about halfway with water. Microwave it until it boils, I usually do about 3 minutes. Pull out the mug and wipe with paper towels. The steam from the boiling water makes wiping all that gunk out a snap.
I have also heard others putting a slice of lemon or some lemon juice in the water to give it a nice fresh scent. I have not tried this one, but I want to.
