How to Clean a Microwave

There are a few things on my chore list that I find myself avoiding: cleaning the shower, hanging clean laundry, wiping down blinds, and cleaning the microwave. In our kitchen the microwave is up high which makes it even harder to get to, and therefore, less likely to be cleaned.

I was so excited when I came across this all natural suggestion for cleaning a microwave on Pinterest.

It’s so easy, isn’t full of chemicals, and smells wonderful!

Yep, that’s all you need.

1) a bowl of water
2) vanilla extract

Take a microwave safe bowl and fill it with 2 cups of water. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and microwave for 5 minutes.

Remove the bowl and wipe down the microwave with a cloth or paper towel. That’s it, so simple. Your microwave will smell like cookies!

I was impressed with how easily everything wiped right up. I also like to pour the water down my garage disposal to help freshen that up too.

Happy cleaning,
