Removing Microwave Stains

10,928 Views
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.

    Just placing a wet rag in microwave and microwaving for about 30 seconds works too.The moisture loosen's the burnt food.But becareful when removing the rag it will be hot.
