I pinned this before but just actually tried it and it works perfectly! Had my nasty microwave clean in about 30 seconds. "Fill a microwaveable bowl with 1-2 cups of water and add a dash of vinegar (about a tablespoon or two). Put the bowl in the microwave, shut the door, and turn it on for 5 minutes. Then take a cloth and wipe down the inside of the microwave; the dirt and food will come right off"
1-2 cups of water w/ 1-2 tblsp of vinegar put in a microwave bowl and put in microwave for 5 minutes.... Take out and wipe clean with a rag. (This is how I clean my microwave, but I just use water, heat it til it boils and leave it in the microwave without opening the door for 5 min to let the steam do it's work. I will try adding vinegar next time to see if it makes a difference ~ Katie)
