Removing Microwave Stains

I've been slowing making my way through the kitchen and yesterday I cleaned the microwave. The burned-on stains are the tough to remove but with a trick up my sleeve the task was much easier. Fill a bowl with 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil for about 30 seconds in the microwave and then stop the heating mode. Let it stand for several minutes. The vapor will help loosen up the stains and make them much easier to remove.

    I have saved quite a bit of money by using a mixture of original blue Dawn & vinegar for most cleaning in my house. For tubs, I spray this mixture all over the tub and then sprinkle baking soda over that, let it sit 5 min. and then just wipe stains

    Wanda, do you put any water with the dawn, vinegar mixture? and what proportions do you use? Thanks!

      I use equal parts vinegar & blue dawn. Put into a scrub wand and quickly scrub my shower while taking one. HTH

    I like the way vinegar deoderizes

    I tried using the dawn/vinegar combination but I really could not stand the smell! No one else has that problem?

    Fingernail polish remover will clean up a microwave that has scorched on the inside.

      How do you go about cleaning those scorched brown spots with the nail remover?
