Works for Me Wednesday - Shortcut to a Clean Microwave

It's Wednesday again - time for another "Works for Me!" tip, inspired by the blog carnival/series at We are THAT Family. For this week's Works for Me Wednesday tips from across the blogosphere, click here.

This week's Works for Me Wednesday tip - cleaning out the microwave. If you're like us, this chore can make you shudder, but we've both recently learned a shortcut: Fill a bowl with water (add a few tablespoons of vinegar if you like for some extra cheap and natural cleaning power). Microwave the bowl for a few minutes, and then remove the bowl and wipe down the softened crud from the inside of the microwave. This saves you both time and muscle. :)

Do you have any microwave-crud-busting tips? Share, share! :)

Love this tip! I've also heard of putting a few slices of lemon in instead of using the vinegar for a bonus good smell. :-)
