A professional cleaner from TikTok shared a simple hack to get a sparkling clean microwave in just two minutes without using harsh detergents.

Insider spoke to another cleaning professional who said that while this was a good idea, they would recommend doing something differently.

Allison Nelson, a Denver-based professional cleaner, posted the hack on her TikTok page and gave her 468,000 followers step-by-step instructions on her method.

She first sprays the inside of the microwave with an “environmentally friendly” disinfectant. She appears to be using the Zep antibacterial disinfectant cleaner, which retails for about $ 5, but notes that the cleaner is not required.

“For mine completely non-toxic [followers], ignore this step and jump to the water, “she says.

Next, Nelson fills a bowl with water, but only about two-thirds of the way so it doesn’t boil over. Then she puts the bowl in the microwave and heats it for about two minutes or until the water comes to a boil.

“Most modern microwaves take about two minutes to come to a boil, but however long it takes, make sure you bring your water to a boil,” Nelson says in a voice-over.

As soon as the water has come to a boil, she carefully takes out the bowl along with the rotating tray and wipes the inside and the rotating tray with a towel. The stuck on food is easy to wipe off.

Nelson adds that skipping the first step in the video and going straight to the water works “just as well” too, but she added a disinfectant because “it’s a microwave and we are dealing with food”.

“It’s that simple,” she said.

Nelson did not immediately respond to Insiders’ request for comment.

Another cleaning expert told Insider they would try this method a little differently

Clean My Space’s Melissa Maker told Insider that she would use this microwave cleaning method in “reverse order”.

“I would put the water in the microwave first and then spray the inside with some all-purpose cleaner,” Maker said.

“”[Nelson] disinfectant used but I don’t think this is necessary for a microwave, “she added.

For an all-purpose cleaner, Maker suggested a DIY mix of soap and water that “should be enough to clean anything that’s in the microwave”.

Also, to help remove stubborn stains, Maker says, “When you clean, you might want to put a little baking soda on your sponge or cloth to wipe it off.”

Baking soda cleans dirt, grime and grease. It is also an important ingredient when baking delicious cakes, muffins and bread.

Non-toxic kitchen cleaning hacks are popular on TikTok

TikTok is full of useful cleaning hacks shared by professional cleaners.

Another user, Kacie Stephens, owner of Sydney-based cleaning service The Big Clean Co, shared a chemical-free way to clean a greasy oven door in December.

Stephens first preheats the oven to soften the burned-in fat before sprinkling baking soda on the door and scrubbing everything with a damp stainless steel washer.
