Messy Monday: How to Clean Your Microwave

Here's a great tip to clean a microwave in a matter of minutes/ All you need is some vinegar, a mug & some extract. (I used maple extract because that's what I had the most of.)

Just pour a splash or two of vinegar in your mug, microwave for 3 min. & wipe clean with a damp cloth. Just be careful with the vinegar fumes possibly "burning" your eyes. If need be, wait a min. or 2 before wiping.

Top, before. Bottom, after.

Now I bet you're wondering how bad your kitchen will smell like vinegar. That's where the extract comes in. Using the same mug, dump the vinegar & rinse it out. Add about a tsp. of extract (whichever kind you want to use) & microwave for 30 sec. You can even leave the mug to sit on your counter for a day or two until all of the extract is dissolved.
