Day 15 - – 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.

my kitchen is fairly new, so I don't have much to sort out there. I will use the tip for cleaning the microwave oven. my son had it before us so there is a bit of a 'burnt' smell. I am still working on my wardrobe and I think I will tackle the linen cupboard next. slow progress is still progress. , marie.

I was supposed to have today off (so much to do!) but just got called in.
Have an hour to wash and dry my uniform. Just popping vinegar and water in the microwave now!

Microwave is done. I think DH must have done it recently as it wasn't too dirty (and I don't think I have ever cleaned it.....gross I know). Still need to do the pantry. Will wait until the kids are in bed for that one I think.

Might be a little late to the party here (story of my life). June's already half over. Not sure how much I can get done in the next two weeks, or where to even start.

The microwave is a good place to start. Though right now I'm making microwave risotto so might have to wait until tomorrow to clean mine.
