This trick will make sure your microwave oven is squeaky clean again!

The microwave is one of the handiest inventions ever and so easy to have around in the kitchen. Warming up some leftovers, defrosting something from the freezer or cooking up a quick meal: the possibilities are endless. But did you know a scientist actually invented this amazing appliance by accident? He discovered that microwaves (the radiation) can very easily be used to heat food, so they made an appliance out of it and gave it a convenient name:  the microwave oven.

The first food that was ever prepared in a microwave was popcorn.

Encrusted food

A downside of this handy kitchen appliance is that it gets dirty pretty quickly. This is especially the case if you have a combi microwave oven and you use it to bake and roast food in. If you’re heating up some soup for your lunch or dinner, there’s always a chance of it starting to splatter and then your microwave is covered in soup. Before you know it, all those old food splatters and scraps are encrusted onto the surfaces and your microwave has devolved into a sort of swamp of undefinable, encrusted stains (yikes).

Handy cleaning trick

Luckily, there’s a very handy trick to easily clean your microwave, and you don’t even have to do any scrubbing! You only need a couple of things for this trick: a small, glass bowl of water, a bit of vinegar and one more item you definitely have in your kitchen drawer or cabinet: a wooden cocktail stick.

What do you have to do?

Pour some vinegar into the glass bowl of water and next put the cocktail stick into the bowl. Place the bowl into the microwave and let it run at full force for 10 minutes. Take the bowl out of the microwave wearing oven mitts. This is important, because the bowl will be extremely hot! Next, take a sponge and wipe it around the inside of the microwave. You’ll see that the filth will be super easy to wipe away, and yes, this even goes for the encrusted food. The result: a squeaky clean microwave oven.
