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. #MyKitchen
A few years ago I bought a new dishwasher. It was very exciting. It is super quiet, which is really important to me. I do so much cooking that there are often two loads a day. After dinner we like to watch a little TV. With my old washer I used to have to remember to start the dishwasher as we went to bed. Otherwise it was so loud we couldn't hear the TV. Sometimes I forgot and would wake up to a dishwasher full of dirty dishes.
