How to Steam Clean the Microwave

In my quest to help eliminate harmful chemicals throughout my house, I was able to eliminate another cleaner by creating my own version of steam cleaning the microwave. I love this easy project because it literally takes less than 2 minutes. It's a perfect project to quickly clean things up and another project.
The only things you will need for this project is water, a dish, a sponge, and lemon essential oil.
Once you start using this method for cleaning you won't ever go back.
If you are looking for a new chemical free way of cleaning up grease and grime from the microwave, head over to PinkWhen for the complete tutorial for this 2 minute cleaning wonder.

    I knew about steam cleaning a microwave but I had no idea about using an essential oil! Love that! Thank you for sharing this.

      @RCooper @ thoughtsbyher.com It's what helps break up the grease and grime. Lemon is really good for that.

    I've been doing this for years, but without the oil. I use my microwave as a proofing box for making bread and, since I make all our bread products, the microwave gets "steamed" on a regular basis.

    I steam it by bringing water with some vinegar added to a boil and then letting it sit for a bit. Everything wipes off easily.
