I usually don’t let my microwave get too dirty because it’s so easy to clean. But when I see a dirty microwave, I use it as a way to teach people how to clean a microwave in 2 easy steps. You got that right. It’s only 2 steps and they’re both easy.
Step 1: Fill a bowl up with water, place in the microwave and turn that dirty thing on for 5 minutes. Note: I put my bowl on a plate, it makes the bowl easier to remove from the microwave. Look, you can do what you want, but after you’ve had scalding water burn your hand because you thought you’d skip putting the bowl on a plate, you’ll put the damn bowl on a plate. Just sayin’
Step 2: Remove bowl and wipe the filthy, no-good, dirty microwave clean with a rag. Or a paper towel, or a sponge. Or, maybe, use the shirt of the person who forgot to cover their food that splattered all over the microwave you just cleaned two weeks ago. Whatever works here, really. And, I actually like to use the hot water from my bowl to dampen the cloth I’m using. I use a paper towel. I love paper towels. It’s amazing how no matter what kind of cloth you use, the filth just wipes clean. It’s the condensation from the water. I’m like a scientist here.
Step 3: There is no Step 3. I told you this was 2 steps, so I made it 2 steps.
Step 4: You are welcome. Now go clean a dirty microwave, someone will love you for it.
