    Microwave Super Cleaner: Just heat a baby wipe for about 5 seconds and wipe, wipe, wipe and it’s crystal clean

  • Interesting concept? I suppose so, how about vinegar instead? I would be concerned that the perfume or lotion would leave a residue which might affect the taste of items cooked in the microwave afterwards. My microwave is typically used just to heat up leftovers or a quick cup of tea. Maybe give it a try? See what happens!

    I wouldn't, I would just use ordinary Dish soap and water or White Vinegar and Water mixture...[baby wipes have added lotions etc..] Just wipe inside with a dishcloth or cleaning Rag and scrub to get the food out and rinse...Don't use Spray Cleaners, its not recommended..

    You can use the baby wipes to clean the microwave oven, but I would follow it up with a dishrag of clean soapy water to wipe any residue away. You probably wouldn't want the ingredients in the baby wipes to come in contact with your food.

    Hhhmmmmm, interesting question to say the least. I am balking at it personally and for no good reason that i can think of.

    My thought would be to read the package to see what is in the wipe. Go from there. If containing a lotion or oil, then probably not suitable for this purpose.

    Hi Hillela, hope this helps you out. You can use them to the really messy stuff out, but I would follow up with a dishcloth with dish soap to clean it out afterwards.

    Glycerin is just soap, just wipe out with water on a damp towel it is gentle enough for babies so just wipe it down with a damp towel.
