When cleaning your microwave, place a coffee mug filled with water inside and run for 5 mins.

The steam will loosen the splattered food on the inside.

  1. BE CAREFUL AND USE A MICROWAVE SAFE MUG FOR THIS.

    ALSO put a pinch of salt or some white vinegar or lemon in the water too to keep the water from superheating and exploding when you move the mug instead of it just boiling normally

  2. Great tip that really works! I also add a slice or 2 of lemon to the mug of water and it kinda neutralizes food smells too.

  3. Better yet, use a wet kitchen/dish towel. Run it for 3 minutes, and then let cool down for a bit before opening the door. Now use the warm, wet towel to wipe out the microwave.

  4. But be really careful. I overheated a mug of clear water, then took it out and dropped a clean spoon in it and went off like a volcano.

  5. Do not do this.

    5 minutes will superheat the water and if you break the surface tension, it will go everywhere, including your hands and face.

    Microwave a paper towel soaked in water for 20 seconds, max.

  6. You can also heat a moist sponge for 1min and it will do double duty – the sponge will get disinfected and the microwave will get steamed to loosen food particles.

    Sponge will be super hot, so be careful taking it out.

  7. I would just get in the habit of giving your microwave a quick wipe out if you nuke anything in there. All this talk about superheated water is scary.

  8. LPT: Microwaving water is super fucking dangerous and can literally explode steam if you’re not super careful.

    Just don’t do this. It’s dumb. Just use a kettle or stovetop.
