I haven’t forgotten! Sorry it has taken me a little longer to get this started than I thought. Life happens, and it isn’t all on the internet!
The first cleaning/cleaner project I decided to do was my microwave. As you can see by the picture, it needed it! I found these instructions HERE at One Good Thing by Jillee. Jillee was hesitant to put them up because she thought everyone knew about this. I didn’t so I’m sure some of you don’t (or maybe not… maybe I’ve just been hiding under a rock… but in case you are like me…)
Anyway, I don’t like cleaning my microwave because it is a pain. I don’t like spraying a bunch of harsh chemicals in it because I just imagine them dripping down into my food. But I’ve had a hard time getting grease and gunk off of it without the cleaners. Well no more! This one actually worked!
All I did was put a glass 4-cup measuring cup with one cup vinegar and one cup hot water, into the microwave and then turn it on for 10 minutes. Jillee said you should check it at 5 minutes just in case. Well, I got going on something else and came back to it and my microwave could easily be wiped clean. No scrubbing. It had just a slight vinegar smell to it but that was fine with me. I don’t mind vinegar! It is stuff that I can’t pronounce that I have a problem with…
One Good Thing by Jillee is a great site, by the way! She has a bunch of ideas… I’m looking forward to spending some time on her site… once I get my house clean!
