How to Clean and Disinfect the Microwave With Just Vinegar and Water
5 easy steps to clean and disinfect your microwave with just vinegar and water.
Things You'll Need
- Microwave safe bowl ( I used a large glass measuring cup)
- Paper towels
- 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar
- 1 cup of water
Pour vinegar and water into a microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl.
Place a measuring cup or bowl in the microwave and heat it until boiling; this will vary by microwave. It's best to keep a close eye on it as it begins to boil. Over-boiling may cause excess steam to build up causing the microwave.
Allow the measuring cup or bowl to remain in the microwave for approximately five minutes so that the steam can accumulate inside the oven.
Carefully open and remove the measuring cup or bowl. Wipe the inside of the microwave clean with a damp sponge. For stubborn stains, dip your sponge in the remaining vinegar and water mixture (careful not to burn yourself).
Dry with a paper towel
