What's an easy way to clean a microwave?

Microwave Cleanup

Cooking tips: clean up time! After you've had food splattered in your microwave, it's hard to clean up when doing kitchen cleaning. Just boil 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1 cup of water in the microwave. This will loosen splattered on food and deodorize for easy clean up.

sounds good to me! I never think of using vinegar for all the things you've listed. I have my own tips on greatinfotips.com. I will return to your site for ideas again. Great job!

This works, but the vinegar is unnecessary since only the water will evaporate and soak into the spattered food.

PLease be extremely careful boiling water in the microwave. Hyper heated water can explode causing serious burns. In the event you are burned this is a great opportunity to use the cider vinegar in the previous tip.
