diy thursday: how to clean the microwave with vinegar

We don't use our microwave very much and it usually isn't very dirty. A quick wipe down usually does the trick. But the other day our microwave was more dirty than normal so I decided to use a quick trick to easily and effortlessly clean the microwave.

All you need is equal parts water and white distilled vinegar. I used 1/3 cup of each.

Add the water and white distilled vinegar to a microwave safe bowl.
Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on high for about 3 minutes.
When it is done let the bowl sit for another couple of minutes to avoid handling a hot bowl and to let the vinegar steam continue to work on the microwave grime.
After removing the bowl, just wipe down the microwave with a damp rag. You will notice how easily all the grime just wipes away.
This is such an easy and quick solution to an otherwise disagreeable task.
