Wondering what is the best way to clean a microwave? Look no further! Once you learn how to use vinegar to steam clean your microwave you’ll never put off cleaning it again! Read on to see how to clean your microwave fast!


  • white vinegar
  • water


  • microwave-safe bowl
  • toothpick or chopstick
  • a damp sponge or paper towels


    1. To clean the microwave with vinegar steam you’ll first pour equal parts vinegar and water (I use one cup of each) in a medium microwave-safe bowl.
    2. Add a chopstick or toothpick to the bowl-this breaks the surface area of the water to help prevent superheating and “popping” of the water than can leads to splashes and burns.
    3. Microwave the vinegar water on high power for 7 minutes, then allow it to sit an additional 3 minutes without opening the door.
    4. When you open the microwave door be cautious of the built-up vinegar steam. Carefully remove the bowl and the turntable-both will be hot.
    5. Use a damp sponge to wipe down the sides, top and bottom of the microwave-it should wipe clean easily.
    6. Wash the turntable in the sink and you’re all done!


Use caution when opening microwave as steam will have built up inside.
