Pinterest Wednesday- Messy Microwave
Living alone means pockets of grossness can happen in a relatively normal looking house. I'm the only one who sees certain things so I'm not always super picky about how they are cleaned. Especially if, like a microwave, the pocket comes with it's own door that you can shut and forget that you said "YUCK" out loud when you opened it.

It was gross, ok? And I'm not going to post pictures of it here because I didn't take any because I was in a hurry to clean. But I tried this technique (click on the image to see the pin and subsequently the webpage for a full description) and it worked really nicely! You still (if you have let things get as bad as I did) have to scrub a little, but a wet dishcloth was all it took. I highly recommend this!


  1. Oh man! Before we sold the house in Canton, we did a big CLEAN ALL THE THINGS so that everything would be awesome and people would want to buy it right away (which did happen pretty quickly). When we went to clean the microwave, it was SO FILTHY. Like, I could not even believe how disgusting it was. The roof, so to speak, was like its own cavern system with stalactites of butter and bacon grease. BLEH. Anyway, my point is that (a) everyone's microwave is gross most of the time and (b) this technique really does work!

    1. Thanks Anne! That makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one with a filthy microwave! This is a super great technique, I'm glad I stumbled across it!
