    Have done this in the past with lemon juice and water. It works fabulously and smells good too.

    I just did this yesterday- works great! Funny story, I had taken the bowl with water out of the microwave and was in the middle of wiping the inside. I couldn't reach the back so my husband said he would help. I left the kitchen and when I came back he was cursing at how hot the water was. Apparently, he thought you had to use the hot water when wiping and was dipping the sponge into the very hot water =0 He should have read this post first ;)
