If there is one appliance that get avoided most during the clean-up process, its the microwave. It never crosses my mind unless I open it to reveal mess of exploded spaghetti sauce and caked on melted cheese. So to do an easy clean up I follow these simple steps:
1) Put 2-3 drops of dish soap to a mug of water and and put in microwave.
2) Microwave on High heat for 2 minutes or until boiling.
2) Without opening the door, let the mug sit for 5-15 minutes in the microwave, depending on dirtiness.
3) Remove mug and wipe down microwave using a wet cloth!
Repeat steps as needed!!
