Easy Ways to Clean and Deodorize a Microwave

cleaning services in Plano, TX

Regular cleaning keeps a microwave odor-free.

Simple Microwave Cleaning

Just like our clients use our cleaning services in Plano, TX to do the maid work around the house, we suggest using the power of your microwave to do the cleaning for you. Not using a microwave to clean around the house like our maids, but to self-clean. Follow these steps. Place a wet dishcloth in the center of the microwave. Turn on the microwave for about 60 seconds. Steam from the heated dishcloth will permeate your microwave. This steam will weaken hardened spills and splatters on the bottom and sides of the microwave. Use the heated cloth to then wipe the microwave interior clean. Be careful when handling the dishcloth after microwaving for 60 seconds. It will be very hot. Wait a few seconds until it cools down. You can find a similar method of cleaning a microwave in the local grocery store. Most stores will sell a pre-made wet pad to use just like the wet dishcloth method. Do these pads work? Yes, but why waste the money when using a wet dishcloth to clean the microwave works just as well.

Eliminating Microwave Odors

Experienced maids at our cleaning services in Plano, TX have an easy and green trick to freshen up the interior of your microwave. For minor odors, add a few slices of lemon, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and some water to a small bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave. Turn on the microwave on high for 30 to 60 seconds. If the microwave has stronger odors like burnt popcorn, our maids know that vanilla extract is a great deodorizer. Place a small bowl of vanilla extract in the microwave and turn on high for at least 30 seconds. Don’t remove the bowl from the microwave or open after the microwave finishes. Leave the bowl of vanilla extract at least 12 hours. After 12 hours, remove the bowl and wipe down the interior of the microwave.
