It’s Day 14 of 31 Days to a Clean House!
(did you see the Seventh Generation giveaway?)
I made a printable for us to track our progress, you could just take it and run, but I think you’ll like the daily motivation and tips and tricks that this series will provide. So come back every day for the assignment and check off your progress as we go. You can go here to grab the free printable.
If you want to keep up on other daily cleaning tasks using my simple routine you can check out my free October cleaning schedule – to learn more about my cleaning routine and how I make cleaning a little bit every day an easy and manageable thing that we do. I have more free printables here too!
We’ve been cleaning our kitchen appliances – you could do this all in one day, but if you’d like to do a little more thorough job and/or not fall behind on any other tasks, just tackle it along with the schedule.
Today we’re going to clean our microwaves….
here are two methods:
method #1
  • take out the glass plate in your microwave and put it in your sink
  • spray the interior of your microwave with non-toxic, all-purpose cleaner
  • wipe down the interior of your microwave with a microfiber towel or cloth
  • wash/dry the glass plate and return it to the microwave
method #2 (my favorite)
  • put a bowl of water and lemon/lemon juice in the microwave and run it until the water boils (3-5 minutes).
  • let the steam do its job by letting it sit for a few minutes
  • wipe clean

  1. I cannot read your blog with the blue and white patterned background

  2. I love the lemon juice way of cleaning the microwave. I still wash the plate by hand though.

  3. I follow the blog in on a continuous rather fun to share information. Sıvı bulaşık deterjanı

  4. Becky! Thanks for that clever and easy way to clean the microwave (with lemons!)!! It due for a clean — and I’ve been dreading it — but am dying to try your suggestion.

    Thank you!

  1. [...] Microwave some water with lemon juice for three minutes, then let it sit undisturbed for another five. This will loosen any sticky mess inside the microwave, which you can then wipe off with a wet sponge and dishwashing liquid, then rinse. Source: cleanmama.net [...]
