Clean Your Microwave with Vinegar and a Toothpick

clean your microwave

Have you noticed some build-up on the inside of your microwave? If it’s been a while since you’ve had the chance to clean your microwave, there could be all sorts of grime inside. And every time you cook, that grime cooks along with your food.

Yes, it’s time for a cleanup session. Don’t worry, it’s easy. Pour equal parts water and vinegar into a bowl (microwave-safe, of course) and add a toothpick. Then place in the microwave and heat on high for 3-5 minutes. (The toothpick helps prevent the bowl from exploding, which would be a lot harder to clean up.)

After 3-5 minutes, simply wipe the inside of the microwave with a sponge or paper towel.
