How to Clean a Microwave with Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is a great cleaning solution due to the citric acid in lemons that easily cuts through grease and other similar stains. Not only an effective cleaning remedy, but lemon juice is also a good green alternative to the abrasive cleaning products found at stores. Using lemon juice to clean your microwave is a nice way to get rid of the build-up grime in the microwave while keeping the environment toxic-free. Also, cleaning your microwave with lemon juice will cost you much less money than it would be with a commercial cleaner. So, if you want to save some money and keep the harmful ingredient contained in store-bought cleaners away from your home, follow these steps to learn how to clean a microwave with lemon juice.

  1. Use a damp cloth to wipe the inner side of your microwave and remove any loose debris. Do not bother if you cannot get rid of some stuck on grease stain with the damp cloth since this would do the lemon juice. The only purpose of this step is to eliminate any crumbs that will just get in the way of the actual cleaning.
  2. Cut a lemon on several pieces, then place the lemon slices into a microwave safe bowl of water. If you don’t have fresh lemons at home, cleaners Parsons Green suggest adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of store-bought lemon juice to the water (2 to 3 cups should be enough).
  3. Place the bowl in your microwave and set the timer for about 3 minutes or time enough for the water to boil in your microwave. The vapours of water and lemon juice will cut the stuck on grease, making it a piece of cake to remove.
  4. Wait for about 10 minutes before taking the bowl out of the microwave. This will give enough time to the steam to build up inside the microwave and loosen the grime there.
  5. Take the bowl outside the microwave, and use a cloth dampened in warm water to wipe the inside of the appliance in order to remove the surface grease.
  6. Repeat the process without step 1 until the microwave becomes completely clean.
