I have to admit that I love my microwave. Before my husband & I got married, I did not own a microwave (by choice). I made popcorn the old fashioned way, boiled water in a tea kettle and heated leftovers in my toaster oven. My husband desperately missed having a microwave once we were married and so I finally purchased one as a gift for his first Father's Day. I think that I have used it more than him since then!!
The one thing I do not like about the microwave is that odors can linger, especially strong odors like garlic or bacon. When you have a lingering odor in your microwave food starts to come out tasting funny. Here is a natural homemade cleaner that I use to get rid of those lingering microwave odors.
- 1/4 cup Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Vinegar
- 5-6 drops Lemon Essential Oil (available at health food stores)
This recipe is from one of my favorite books:
The Naturally Clean Home by Karyn Siegel-Maier.
