Momma Said Monday - Clean Your Microwave

This weeks tip:
How to Clean Your Microwave in Under 10 Minutes

I will be the first to admit I am not the best housekeeper and I did not inherit the love of cleaning from my mom, maybe because she loved it so she just did it. But when I moved out of the house at a young 19, she taught me tons of stuff about cleaning and many many shortcuts. One of my favorites is how to clean the microwave without it taking hours of chipping and scrapping.

First fill a bowl with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Place bowl in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. Remove microwave tray and any other not permanent parts and wipe clean. Continue to wipe clean the inside of the microwave with ease. If there is anything giving you trouble, which happens rarely, just put the bowl back in for another three minutes to loosen things up again!

So do you have any cleaning tips? Grab my button and link away!
