Cleaning Microwave With Lemons ~ Natural Cleaning Tip

This all natural way to clean your microwave will not only leave your microwave clean, but makes your kitchen smell amazing too!

Buy the cheapest white vinegar you can find and common table salt. Dissolve as much salt in the vinegar as will dissolve. Make enough of this solution to completely immerse the item you wish to remove rust. When rust has been removed wash item in soapy water, rinse, dry thoroughly and oil.

Use pure vinegar in the 'jet dry' dispenser. My dishes are so shiny and spot free, and of course, absolutely no vinegar smell can even be detected. You HAVE to try this.
