How do you keep your microwave clean?

The microwave oven is a device you use every day and surely you don't pay too much attention when it comes to cleaning. However, this device can easily become a source of bacteria that can seriously harm your health. And the worst part is that you don't need miraculous products or be an expert in cleaning to keep your oven in top condition. Below is a series of tips that hopefully could prove to be very helpful in keeping your oven running smoothly. But also, so as not to expose yourself to an unnecessary risk when it comes to heating or cooking your food.

Products for cleaning the microwave

There are a number of products on the market designed to clean your oven in one pass. You spray, wipe with a damp cloth, and you're done. It is important to remember that these products are all of chemical origin. Either way, the oven lining is permeated with compounds of uncertain origin that end up affecting both the taste and smell of the food and drink you heat. Are they not recommended? If they are for sale, it is because they have passed all the health checks.

Natural products to clean your microwave

We have emphasized that disinfecting your oven is the main goal. How do I get it? Well, the old fashioned way. Combine water with lemon or vinegar and place the container with this mixture in the oven. Five minutes at full power will suffice. Wipe down the inside of the oven with a damp cloth. Disinfection carried out with total efficiency. To boost this action, you can do the same with soap and water or dishwasher soap. This way you can clean your oven properly and disinfect it. Remember that the high wall is the one most affected by dirt. The steam from the products mentioned above will help you remove dirt easily and leave your oven like it was on the first day. Remember to remove all traces of products with a paper towel or similar. Do not use rags as they leave debris that could ignite when using the oven. Remember that any particle can fall into your food and be harmful to your health.

Does the type of microwave oven influence its cleaning?

Yes. To save time when cleaning, you should choose a model that does not have too many indentations, is easy to clean, and can be maintained as described above.
Can lemon or vinegar damage the oven? No. If you clean it regularly, you will notice that it will perform better than ever. Also, remember that insects such as cockroaches tend to nest inside the microwave oven.
How often should I clean my microwave?
Once a week. It will only take you five minutes. Just turn on the oven, wipe off and dry the paper well. This maintenance is essential to have a greater efficiency of the furnace.

How do I know if I need to clean the oven?

In principle, it is something that can be seen with the naked eye. But you can take the following test. Put a cup of tea for example for two minutes to ensure that the water is at a very high temperature. If two weeks later you do the same thing but the water doesn't come out so hot, it's because the dirt is already building up. Avoid this situation by planning and cleaning your oven weekly.
This was our advice. It's up to you to use them to obtain a more efficient oven than ever.
