    And the pile of clothes to sort out into a donate pile and what to pack away for when ds2 grows into them(a lot of these clothes were also just thrown to the bottom of ds1s wardrobe when he grew out of them): Attachment 55858
    I'm the same! Had the cleaner do the microwave this week. Does that count it I outsourced the job? Lol.

    I'm doing the linen cupboard today instead. Thanks Katie's mum!

    The linen cupboard is on the list. It's kitchen week though, so we still have someone in there. I think the oven is tomorrow ... Then some cupboards and drawers if you want to get ahead.

    5th June – Microwave

    Take the tray out of the microwave and give the whole thing a great clean.
    The quickest way to clean a microwave oven is to place a handful of wet paper towels inside and run it on High for 3-5 minutes. Steam from the towels will soften the grime. Once the paper towels cool down, use them to wipe the oven's interior.

    Some of us though have a natural ta­lent for exploding things in the microwave (usually involving something messy and sticky). To easily get rid of this type of spatter or grease, add 1/4 cup vinegar to 1 cup water in a glass measuring cup. Boil the mixture for three minutes in the microwave. But don't open the door just yet -- let it stand in the microwave for about ten more minutes. Soon, everything should be loosened up nicely.

    Lemons also may be used as a variation. Heat a bowl of water with lemon slices in your microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, then wipe out the oven. Stains will be easier to remove and old food odors will be neutralized.

    Remember to use microwave-safe containers when nuking your food. Many plastics and even paper towels break down when microwaved, releasing toxins that leach into food.

    Boil and Bubble
    Boiling vinegar (or lemon juice) in the microwave is a good way to rid (and your home) of that persistent burned-popcorn smell.
    I did the microwave today and used the vinegar/ water method and it worked a treat!

    Yes vinegar & water in the microwave is great! Got most of the grim out just a bit more to go...there's been lots of exploded butter in there so its quite greasy.

    I didn't have to cook tonight so after work I put DS in his high chair to feed himself dinner while I got cleaning!!

    Microwave, so embarrassed to even post the before photo but here is the before and after.

    Then came the freezer:

    Then the fridge. Which was pretty easy because I clean it out most weeks. The shelves did need a good clean! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1401870105.061519.jpg

    Feeling good! Just got to tackle the pantry, which I'll do on the weekend. I need to find some storage solutions for the pantry because it's so tiny.

    The microwave looks surprisingly good! The vinegar definitely helped. Not perfect, but it's the cleanest I've ever seen it so I'm happy with my efforts.

    I did my microwave - used lemon slices in a bowl of water ... and it worked great.

    My microwave wasnt too bad though, as I cleaned it not that long ago. If it was terrible (as it gets sometimes), the vinegar works really well.
