Easily Clean your Microwave

Maybe I'm the last one on earth to figure this out, but did you know there is a natural, non-chemical way to clean your microwave, and you don't even have to scrub it?  Not one little bit!! I was home today doing a major cleaning job for my baby's first birthday party on Sunday, and the microwave was in dire need of a cleaning.  I thought I had read about a natural way to clean your microwave, so I checked google (where else would check?).

This is what you do:  Put 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup lemon juice into a glass microwavable measuring cup.  Put it in the microwave and cook it on high for 7 minutes.  When it is done, let it set without opening the door for another 5 minutes.  Then grab your pot holder and remove the measuring cup. Next get a cloth and wipe our your microwave.

It's as simple as that!!  I wonder if it would work on my oven.....

and if you don't have lemon juice, vinegar works too (although the lemon juice smells better!) :-)
