Safely Clean Your Microwave with Vinegar!

HA!  My husband was just complaining this morning about the amount of food stuck to our microwave.  In my defense my microwave is up high so I rarely notice it starting to get bad.  Put a lid on the food to prevent the mess in the first place???  Great idea, but I still don't do it.  Am I lazy?  most likely. :)

ANYWAY...  Amanda from A Few Short Cuts just posted about using vinegar to clean your microwave quick.  It worked great!  And my kitchen smells like salad. :)
Check out her post to see how it's done.  I like the idea of using vinegar instead of chemicals around food.  Thanks Amanda!!

I also use vinegar in my dishwasher as a rinse agent.  Great money saver!

I aslo just put a water to boil in the microwave and then any gunk that might be there just towels off.

but I do love vinegar for cleaning.

if you put a bowl of water like the above post said...add some extract-lemon, almond, peppermint, etc...your house smells terrific and it works like a charm...more water and longer boiling time the worse your microwave is ;)

Ohh, Thank you , I was thinking today about cleaning the Microwave, I am glad you share this post! :)
So V and Krista you just boil water, no vinegar?? I LOVE the extract idea!!
Krista and Jeff said…
just water in a bowl with about a teaspoon of extract-I use a couple cups of water so that it doesn't boil out before the time is up...I usually do about 10-15 minutes...if there is still stuck on stuff...add more water and do it a little just wipes clean :) no vinegar at all.

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
