How to clean Microwave

A microwave oven is a kitchen appliance that uses radio waves to cook food. Microwave ovens use microwaves — a form of electromagnetic radiation — to excite the molecules in food.

The food is heated from the inside out, so there’s no need to turn it over halfway through cooking.

You can clean a dirty microwave by using a soft cloth and dishwashing liquid.

Remove the top grill from the microwave. Take care to carefully remove the screws so the top does not fall off. Fill a bowl with a mixture of water and dish soap.

Dip your cloth into the mixture and ring it out so it is not dripping wet. Place your damp cloth over the entire food tray inside of the oven.

Close the door, turn on for one minute, turn off, wait one minute open door and wipe down with damp cloth if necessary.

Remove the inside of the microwave from the outer case. Use a dry cloth or paper towel to wipe any visible food debris from all surfaces, including the inner sides of the door.

Clean away any crumbs that have fallen into nooks and crannies around hinges and latches with a toothpick or a Q-tip.

Fill a bowl with a mixture of water and dish soap. Dip your cloth into the mixture and ring it out so it is not dripping wet.

Wipe down all surfaces inside the microwave, including any plastic parts, with the damp cloth. Do not allow excess moisture to seep into nooks and crannies where food debris can collect after reassembly.

If you see any mold inside the microwave, remove it with a solution of one part vinegar and three parts water. Use a paper towel or Q-tip to apply the mixture to areas where mold is visible.

Insert an immersion blender into the bottom of the bowl and turn it on briefly, stopping as soon as any chunks are reduced to liquid. If you don’t have an immersion blender, shake up the bowl or stir with a fork.

Remove the top grill from the microwave and set it aside, then remove the inside of the oven and place it on a towel.

Pour both parts of your solution into the food tray and let soak for ten minutes, then use your scrubber to finish cleaning the inside of the oven, paying special attention to any areas where food buildup may have collected.

Once you’ve removed all visible debris, replace the metal bottom of your microwave and replace the grill or cover on top of it.

This will keep anything from accidentally falling inside while allowing air to circulate through your microwave.

Wipe down the outside of your microwave with a soft cloth and dishwashing liquid diluted in warm water.

Allow the exterior to air dry. Then, press the “Menu” button on your microwave’s control panel or front door to run through any self-cleaning cycles that are available for your Microwave model.

So this is how to clean Microwave.
