CLEAN YOUR MICROWAVE WITH LEMON.

Instead of scrubbing, scraping, and scouring away at a splattered microwave mess, you can get a better clean with the help of a lemon. Simply squeeze juice from a lemon into about half a cup of water and drop the remaining lemon in. Put the mixture into the microwave for around three minutes—basically long enough to come to a boil.

The mixture, now steamed, will fill your microwave. Once you let it sit for five minutes, you can open the microwave, remove the bowl, and take a cleaning rag or paper towel to the inside. Any spilled gunk will come off easily, and the lemon and steam will help any lingering odors.
