Did this today - worked awesome. Pour one cup vinegar (into a 2-cup measuring cup or bowl) then add one cup of hot water to that. Place measuring cup (or bowl) in the microwave, set your timer for approximately 10 minutes and turn it on. After 10ish minutes…CAREFULLY remove the cup with the HOT liquid (use an oven mitt!) and wipe out the inside with a wet rag.
1 cup vinegar 1 cup hot water 10 minutes in microwave = steam clean! Totally works. No more scum. no funky smells. Easy Peasy!
Vanilla Extract 101 - Clean the microwave and leave it smelling sweet with this household trick! Mix 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a microwave-safe container, and zap it on high for five minutes. When it's done, remove the container and wipe down the interior of the oven. Any gunk should slide right off.
