Modern hostesses, fast food sellers, office workers, students cannot imagine their life without this household appliance. In this oven you can not only heat up, but also cook various goodies. But, sooner or later, as with any other devices, there comes a critical moment when the user understands: it's time! And the search for a method begins, without exerting an inhuman effort, without spending incredible amounts of money and time on it.
How to clean the microwave
First, you should follow the rules for using the microwave. Usually these ovens are made of easily laundered materials. But if you put dishes into it without a lid, then its ceiling and walls are definitely smudged. After a few days it will be unpleasant to peep into the stove, not like cooking in it. Moreover, it will be difficult to scrub all this, even from the ceiling, and even with a grill ... But there are many relatively easy ways to quickly and easily wash even the most neglected microwave. If every time after using it to wipe it from the inside, then drops of food, fat and other contaminants will not accumulate on its walls, and keeping the stove clean will be much easier. Otherwise, you will have to resort to more radical methods, which is not very desirable. And if you start to use the polluted microwave, then from the burning, dried-on leftover food, foul odors will appear in it. Especially when the convection or grill mode is on, the leftovers will burn even more, turning into indelible black spots.
To prevent the stove from getting dirty from the inside, heat food in plastic containers or use a special hood
If it so happened that it did not work out in time to wipe the oven and the spray dried, then before, it should be “steamed”. Dried drops on the walls soften under the action of steam coming from a glass of water or a small bowl of water. You need to put the vessel in the stove, turn it on and wait for almost complete boiling away. After this procedure, the microwave should be turned off, wait 15 minutes until it is completely cooled and proceed to washing it. In this case, the use of a hard brush or coarse detergent powders with abrasive particles should be avoided. With extreme caution you need to deal with the magnetron and the ventilation grill. The oven should be wiped with a regular soft cloth moistened in warm water. The pallet, the top and the walls are wiped clean, and then wipe dry. After that, it is necessary to close the microwave not tightly, so that the door remains slightly ajar: the stove will be further dried and ventilated, and no moisture will form on its walls. If one cleaning was not enough, as evidenced by the result of the work, then the procedure must be repeated, starting again with steaming dirt.
So often it happens - we somehow do not pay attention to the state of the device, and then in one "wonderful" moment we open and we are horrified by what we see.
If dirt and grease froze, put a container of water in the oven and turn it on. After the dirt is easily removed
The easiest way, - ready-made tools that are sold in hardware stores. Typically, the tool should be applied to the internal coating of the microwave and leave for a couple of minutes. After that, the oven should be wiped with a damp clean sponge to remove residual products, and the door should be left ajar to erode the smell. After cleaning the microwave, be sure to wait until it is completely dry, so that no serious problems arise in the operation of the device.
You can also prepare an effective mixture of home remedies. One of the most common ways,, - after steaming, as described earlier, and completely cooling the oven, apply warm detergent for dishwashing to its walls. This must be done before the drops dry again. Let the tool stay on the body for about 15 minutes, after which it remains to simply wipe it off with a soft sponge. But in no case do not brush with a scouring powder, so as not to damage the delicate coating of the oven!
Use soft and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
For cleansing, use only soft fabrics, without abrasive surfaces.
Means for such a procedure can be found in any kitchen. A very popular option -. To do this, pour in any container that is suitable for use in a microwave oven, a glass of water. To it you need to add 4 tablespoons of vinegar. Capacity should be put in the microwave and turn it on for 15 minutes in the heating mode. Naturally, the glass of the door, as well as the walls of the furnace, will actively begin to fog up. Next you need to remove the container along with a rotating plate, which can be simply washed in the sink. In order not to burn yourself, you should use kitchen oven mitts. Immediately after cooling the oven with a damp sponge, it is necessary to thoroughly wipe the walls, top and bottom of the microwave, as well as its doors. After such a sauna, the fat will be removed quickly and easily. It will only enjoy the result. That's just from the heating of the vinegar, the kitchen will overflow with a pungent smell, so you have to air it well.
Vinegar cleaning is a fairly popular way.
Soda to help
If the sharp odors do not like the hostess, then nothing remains for her,. This method is especially good when the oven is too started, and the fat has accumulated too much. In principle, the actions are the same as with vinegar. Only instead of acid in hot water you need to add two tablespoons of soda. It should be diligently mixed until the powder is completely dissolved. Everything else is the same as in the process described above. And the effect will be the same, but there will be no odors. It turns out, in general, such a "neutral" way. Is that necessary to ensure that the soda does not remain on the walls of the furnace. Her crystals, if they were not removed to the end, will be noticeable after airing the washed microwave.
For greater effectiveness, drip lemon juice or the same vinegar into the soda.
Don't forget lemon
And one of the most favorite ways of our hostesses is to use lemon to clean the internal surfaces of the microwave oven. To do this, you need to squeeze out the juice from half a lemon, add it to a glass of pre-heated water and, again, put it on the heating mode in the microwave. After the same 15 minutes, when the oven "sweat", it can be turned off, wait for cooling and quickly wipe. The result is the same as in the previous methods, except that the whole apartment will be flavored with a fresh lemon smell.
Cut the lemon into slices or simply squeeze the juice into the water and heat the container in the oven
If the device is already washed, you can finally walk through it with a sponge with lemon juice - this will give the surface shine and fresh aroma.
Many hostesses do not recognize another way,. She, too, is always on hand, but will not leave any smell. This option, moreover, is much more economical. You need to put a cup of citric acid dissolved in water (2 teaspoons) and turn it on for about 10 minutes. After that, you need to wipe the microwave with a soft damp sponge. Any fat after such steaming will go away easily and quickly.
If you regularly take care of the stove, it will long delight you with its shining look
Recently, a lot of home chemistry products have appeared, which is why modern housewives have unfairly forgotten about laundry soap.

It is only necessary to lather the sponge abundantly with a piece of soap, rub it with the help of the inside of the microwave, leave it for 10 minutes and rinse with warm clean water.
And in order not to care about that in the future, you just need to always cover the dish with a special plastic lid during its operation, which will protect the walls from any contamination and grease.
