Your microwave is likely one of the most commonly used appliances in your kitchen. Popcorn, Hot Pockets, and the leftover Lasagna from last night are a few common food items that will likely help to create messes inside your microwave. Using water to steam clean your microwave is the quickest, safest and easiest way to clean and sanitize one of your most used appliances on a regular basis.
If your microwave has significant build up or odors you should also add white vinegar in your bowl or glass of water. The Canton Cleaning Company staff uses this method, rather than using cleaning chemicals that can leave residue that could be cooked into food.
The benefits of using vinegar, aside from making microwave clean-up super easy, is that it also assists in sanitizing and deodorizing. No more germs and your microwave won’t smell like the last ten meals you cooked in it.
Pour a cup of white vinegar and a cup of water into a glass or microwaveable bowl.
Place the bowl of water and vinegar in the microwave and run it for 3 to 5 minutes.
As soon as the microwave has stopped, make sure you step back while opening the door to protect your face and skin from the steam.
