Well lucky for you, we’ve got not only the easiest but the fastest way for you to clean your microwave. In order to do this, you’ll need four things: water, lemons/lemon juice, vinegar, and a sponge. Have all of these things? Then you’re all set. Keep reading!

Cleaning Your Microwave

Gather Your Supplies

The first thing you want to do when cleaning your microwave is prepare all the necessary supplies. Grab a small microwave-safe bowl and fill it about halfway with warm water. Then add your ingredients. Add two teaspoons of lemon juice or two slices of lemon. Then add three tablespoons of vinegar.


Place your mixture in the microwave and cook it on high for 3-5 minutes.


After that’s done, wait about three minutes. Give the microwave and the bowl a chance to cool down before pulling it out. And then you can take your sponge and easily wipe away and stuck on food/debris. Easy right? It really does work wonders.  
When that’s done, you can take your sponge, rinse it off, then dip it in your cleaning solution and wipe the door and the handle. You can also do this with a microfiber rag instead of your sponge. Whatever works for you.
Pro Tip: When you’re done cleaning the microwave, pop your sponge in the microwave for 1-2 minutes to kill off any bacteria it may be harboring.

Clean Regularly

Repeat this process at least twice a month to prevent further food buildup in your microwave. You can do it once a week if you’re feeling froggy. But it’s not necessary. Doing this a couple times a month will also make it easier to clean each time you do it. No more tough elbow grease. Learn to clean smarter, not harder.
