How to Steam-Clean Your Microwave in Minutes

To easily clean a microwave, pour 1 cup of water and 1 cup of vinegar into a bowl.

Add a toothpick to break the surface tension and microwave for 4 minutes.

Then dip a sponge in the solution and wipe the inside of the microwave clean!


  1. I live in an apartment and would like to install a hanging fan/light. Is there anything on the market that I can hang up without doing a permanent install? Or is this just a pipe dream on my part? Thank you for your time.

  2. I tried several of Joe’s easy solutions and they all work. I’m a big fan of the show! I need to clean my kitchen cabinets and since my range hood doesn’t work properly, there’s a lot of greasy film on my cabinets. Any suggestions for an easy way to clean them?

  3. I have a convection/microwave installed above my stove. I went this route when I installed new cabinets, rather than cut through them for a vent. We use the fan of the unit. It is deep and it is caked with burnt on grease(?). I have to preheat before using and then I can set my time. How can I steam clean or steam blast my appliance to become more like new? Is there a way? No harsh abrasives can be used on the walls. Too, the glass turntable needs a good blasting also. I am not 5′ tall and had to resort to using this appliance for all my oven needs for more than a year before I could replace my stove. My height prevented me from realizing how bad the situation was becoming until it got out of control.

  4. I just have a small .7 cu ft micro so I reduce the solution by half. Works great and has my personal endorsement. We can always count on Joe!
