    For quick cleanups I take a clean wash cloth, soak it in water, place the cloth in the micro wave and heat it for about 1 1/2 minutes. I'll wait a couple of minutes to remove the steaming cloth, so I don't get burned. I use a clean dish towel to dry.

    Lemon and water work great. Alwsys leave the microwave door open for a brief time after cleaning to eliminate any lingering odor. I

    ALWAYS cover anything I heat in my microwave, which helps keep it clean, and I ALWAYS put the glass turn table in the dishwasher.
