        I use three simple things to clean my microwave: a bowl, water and a rag. I find it is not necessary to add anything to the water. The steam from the boiling water, alone, is enough to loosen any food splatters or spills. After the water boils, I let it sit for a little bit and then wipe all the surfaces with a wet rag. Can't get much easier or greener than that. :)
