Find out how to clear your microwave correctly – 7NEWS.com.au
When it comes to cleaning your microwave oven, there is a right way and a wrong way to go. The right way is about cleaning smarter, not harder. It’s not the easiest device to clean, so a little steam cleaning comes into play here.
It’s easy because you can just fill a bowl with water. You can even add a little lemon or vinegar if you’d like. Turn the microwave on for five minutes. This will put a lot of steam into the oven. When the cycle is complete and you have removed the bowl (very carefully with gloves) it will be much easier to root out the oven as everything will have become softer.

Microwave your sponge
Stop wiping your kitchen countertops with dirty tea towels and sponges because all you’re doing is spreading the germs. What you need to do is make sure that you are using a clean tea towel and sponge every day. Put them in the microwave for at least 30 seconds to disinfect them.
Cleaning experts recommend swirling your sponge in the microwave as well. File image. Photo credit: Getty Images
