how to clean the inside of a microwave

microwave clean proccess

Cleaning inside of a microwave is a matter of 5 minutes if you know the proper way to clean it. Never use any detergent or dishwashing gel or any chemical to clean the inside. Vinegar or lemon juice along with one bowl of water is enough for cleaning the inside. We will discuss three procedures here.

Let's discuss it step by step

Procedure 1

Cleaning with vinegar

Elements we will use:

  1. Vinegar (Synthetic or Apple cider)
  2. A clean bowl.
  3. Water.
  4. Spoon 
  5. A towel or kitchen tissue or a fresh piece of cotton cloth.

Step 1

Take a bowl and fill it with fresh water.


You can use a glass or mug if you don’t have any bowls. Whatever you want to use but be sure that is microwave-proof.

Step 2

Take a spoon of white vinegar.

Mix it with the water.

Step 3

Insert the bowl inside the oven.

Close the door and set the timer around 5-7 minutes. If the strains and odors are more, you can set it for 10 minutes too.

Step 5

After the timer off. Allow 2 minutes to cool down the interior. By this time the vapor will cover the door glass.

Step 6

Procedure 2

Cleaning with Lemon


Cleaning with lemon follows the same procedure we have used to clean with vinegar. The only difference here is we are going to use lemon instead of vinegar.

Take a lemon and cut it in a half. Then put both pieces in the bowl. Pout it with water and follow the other spets.
