WFMW - Cleaning the Microwave
Around our house not everything that goes into the microwave gets covered up. As a result I sometimes open the microwave and marvel at how much food is splattered on the inside.
Instead of scrubbing until my elbow hurts, I partially fill a glass Pyrex measuring cup (I think mine holds about 2L) with water and add about 1/2 cup of vinegar. I put it in the microwave uncovered and cook on high for about 5 minutes. I let it sit in there for another 5-10 minutes and then simply wipe the inside of the microwave clean. The steam helps to loosen the food particles and the vinegar acts as a cleaner and deodorizer. It works for me!
