How to Clean a Microwave

All it takes is one round of leftovers or burnt bag of popcorn to turn a sparkling clean microwave into a grimy, smelly mess. The key to keeping a clean countertop microwave is regular maintenance — every few days, at the very least. When you notice stains on your microwave’s interior or want to get rid of stuck-on food, turn to this foolproof guide on how to clean a microwave by Carolyn Forte, Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab.

Unlike other kitchen appliances, you can clean a microwave with everyday cleaning products you already have in your house, including all-purpose cleaner, baking soda, dish soap or vinegar (white or apple cider). That’s right, stay away from bleach because General Electric warns it actually weakens the plastic interior and damages the appliance in the long-run. Unless you let tomato sauce splatters sit for too long, microwaves don’t usually stain like most countertops and sinks, so the whitening cleaner is unnecessary to begin with.

Now, follow this expert-tested guide to clean your microwave from the outside in — door, turntable, and all.

There’s Gardening after which there is Landscaping, they each involve planting and the use of out of doors elements; I guess the query could be is it gardening or landscaping? The neglect-me-nots came from my 86-yr-previous maternal grandmother Jean, my final remaining grandparent. They had been the first thing I planted in this garden, four years ago. I’ve lived in the flat for nearly a decade, however it was only in the summer of 2016 that we finally found the power and enthusiasm to clear the 8ft-high knot of brambles. I used to be suffering from agoraphobia because of put up – traumatic stress dysfunction , and my world had shrunk. So my then boyfriend, now husband, constructed me a garden.
