Cleaning a microwave removes food residue, stains, and odors that can build up over time. If left uncleaned, a dirty microwave can become a breeding ground for bacteria and germs, which can contaminate your food.
Using vinegar to clean your microwave can help extend its lifespan by preventing the build-up of grime and food residue, which can cause damage to the interior of the microwave over time.
Combine a cup of water and a cup of vinegar in a bowl that is safe to use in the microwave. You can also add a few drops of lemon juice for a fresh scent.
If the stains are still not coming off, you can try using a paste of baking soda and water to scrub the inside of the microwave. Apply the paste to the stains and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth.
– Allowing the vinegar and water mixture to cool before removing it from the microwave to avoid burns. – Wearing gloves to protect your hands from hot surfaces.
