How to clean your microwave

I put some pasta with tomato sauce in my microwave yesterday and forgot to set the timer. After 6 minutes it had exploded like an alien monster hit by a nuclear bomb.
So, how did I clean it?
I tried a quick wipe with a paper towel, but that didn’t do the trick. A much deeper clean was needed.
I took out the glass tray and the ring with wheels on it and washed them in the sink with soap and water.
Then I took out my secret weapon to tackle the inside of the machine.
We have a wooden floor and we use a diluted solution of vinegar and water in a spray bottle to clean it. This works great on the inside of microwaves, too.
Using a sponge, I wiped down the inside and the vinegar cut through the tomato sauce like a dream.
If your appliance has old grease and fat stuck to the sides and door (shout out here to all you university students out there!) I suggest putting 2 or 3 tablespoons of vinegar into a microwave-safe bowl of water and zap it on high for at least 5 minutes.
Don’t open the door straight away. Just leave it closed for at least 10 minutes. The vinegar and steam are cleaning the inside of your microwave and it will cut through the grease and dirt inside.
You can also use a lemon for this. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice in to the bowl of water. Drop the two lemon halves in the bowl and zap it on high for 10 to 15 minutes and you’ll get a similar result.
