How to remove stains from microwave ovens

Microwave ovens are indispensable for our daily life, but they always get dirty very easily. With these tips of how to remove stains from microwave ovens that we bring you today, say goodbye to stains.


We need:
– A microwave container
– Lemon juice
Baking soda
– water


Fill a microwave-safe bowl with hot water and then pour the juice of one lemon into the water. We can also use a little baking soda or vinegar instead of lemon.
Put the container to heat inside the microwave for 5 minutes or until the water is boiling. This is so that the steam from the water will deep clean the microwave.
Finally, we only have to remove the container from the microwave and clean the inside with a soft cloth.
In case the microwave stains do not disappear with the first wash, we can use a chemical-free solution made from baking soda with water.
If the stains still don’t come off then it is best to use a little nail polish remover. Just apply it until the yellow stains disappear and then clean the nail polish remover residue by washing the oven with soap and water.

Recommendations to avoid stains


The microwave is a device that heats the molecules, stirring them in order to heat things up.
This fact makes that some liquids or foods jump from their container and dirty the walls of the microwave very easily.
Therefore a recommendation is to cover the food as much as possible.
In the case of heating solid food the most advisable thing is to cover it with another plate on top. There are special plastic or covers for microwaves.
Obviously and very important is not to introduce metallic objects inside the microwave nor to put the microwave in operation when it is empty because the absence of food to warm up can deteriorate the mechanism of the microwave.
