I just tried PoM’s (aka UfYH lady) “nuke a bowl of vinegar and water for a few minutes” microwave cleaning trick.
No, really, that’s all I kept thinking as I was wiping. WOW. Everything came off so easy. I think there were 2 small splatters (I’m pretty sure they were either tomato soup or tomato sauce from baked beans or something) that I had to go back and scrub at. Everything else wiped off (literally) effortlessly.
The only difficult part of the whole process was leaning down and over so that I could see the inside top of the microwave; my back doesn’t like that.
And now the whole thing sparkles and shines (and smells a little like pickles, but hey, there’s worse things it could smell like!). I wish I’d known that trick sooner!
A) Looks awesome.
C) (I put this in a comment) If you throw a slice of lemon in there too, it cuts the vinegar smell a bit.
