Say Goodbye to Dirty, Smelly Microwaves!

Here is a simple trick for cleaning your microwave and making it smell fresh at the same time.  Take a bowl of water and put a few drops of lemon juice(bottled or fresh) into the bowl.  Put it in the microwave and set the timer for five minutes (a few more if necessary).  Now while the microwave is doing it's thing, grab yourself a cookie and a cup of coffee/tea and put your feet up.  Enjoy a few minutes to yourself relishing in the thought of your microwave being clean and fresh.  When the timer goes off, take out the bowl (careful, it's HOT).  Grab a rag or paper towels and wipe down your microwave until all unidentifiable substances have been removed.  Bingo!  SMELLY MICROWAVE!  Repeat if necessary until it's sparkling clean. 

NOTE:  Don't use cleaning your microwave as a cover-up for eating cookies.  Your family will begin to catch on.  I recommend keeping a private stash hidden somewhere and then locking yourself in the bedroom to eat them :)
