Spring Cleaning is happening at my house!
Deep cleaning a microwave is an important task that helps to remove built-up food debris, stains, and odors. Here are the steps to follow for a thorough deep clean:
1. Remove any loose debris: Start by removing any large pieces of food debris or spills from the inside of the microwave.
2. Mix a cleaning solution: Mix one cup of water and one cup of white vinegar in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup. You can also add a few drops of lemon juice for a fresh scent.
3. Microwave the cleaning solution: Place the bowl or measuring cup with the cleaning solution inside the microwave and heat on high for five minutes. The solution will boil and create steam, which will help to loosen any food debris and stains.
4. Let it sit: After the microwave has finished, leave the bowl or measuring cup inside the microwave for a few minutes to allow the steam to continue to work on any stubborn stains or food debris.
5. Wipe the interior: Carefully remove the bowl or measuring cup from the microwave and use a clean microfiber cloth or sponge to wipe down the interior of the microwave, paying special attention to any particularly dirty or stained areas.
6. Clean the exterior: Wipe down the exterior of the microwave with a damp cloth or sponge, paying attention to any buttons, handles, or other areas that may be dirty.
7. Clean the turntable: Remove the turntable and wash it in the sink with warm, soapy water. Dry it thoroughly before replacing it in the microwave.
8. Clean the vents: Use a soft-bristled brush or a toothbrush to clean the vents on the top, sides, and bottom of the microwave.
9. Repeat if necessary: If there are still stubborn stains or food debris, repeat the process or use a non-abrasive cleaning product specifically designed for microwaves.
10. HIRE A PROFESSIONAL LIKE Maid Mi Dia and have them do it.
By following these steps, you can deep clean your microwave and keep it looking and smelling fresh.
