Here is tips on how to clear the microwave rapidly and simply


No matter what you heat in the microwave, there will always be dirt. Here are some cleaning tips

Citric acid

One of the most well-known methods is cleaning with citric acid. It should not be used too often if the turntable is enamel. For cleaning you will need a glass of water and a tablespoon of citric acid.

You can use four tablespoons of lemon juice instead of citric acid.


Add citric acid to the water. If you have a lemon, squeeze out the juice and pour the rest of the lemon into the water. Pour the mixture into a mug or bowl in the microwave. Place the mug in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes.

After turning off the device, wait 7 to 12 minutes.

Remove the cup and carefully wipe the tray with a sponge.

This method removes not only grease and dirt, but also unpleasant odors.

Water and baking soda

Dissolve a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water. Then follow the same steps as the previous trick. Baking soda settles inside the microwave as condensation and dissolves splattering grease.

For the most difficult cases

There are also ways to remove dirt in the microwave. Not just grease and stains, but everything – absolutely everything! You will need a glass of water, a glass of vinegar and two tablespoons of lemon juice. Heat everything for two minutes over high heat. Wait a bit, let the steam out and carefully wipe the inside of the microwave.

You can use dish soap and baking soda. Add baking soda to the washing-up liquid to make a thick paste. Stir to completely dissolve the baking soda and wipe off the microwave.

The third recipe is for stainless steel microwaves. You can’t clean it with citric acid, but you can use coconut oil – sprinkle it on a paper towel and wipe down the inside of the oven.
