How to Clean Your Microwave (And Proof I'm Losing My Mind)

Today's post is completely unplanned. I had decided I was going to share a review of a tip I found on Pinterest, but then the following happened:

I spent the morning tidying up and felt like eating so I decided to pop some soup in the microwave where, upon opening the door, I found this:

A perfectly nice bowl of lemon water and lemon halves from uh...yesterday?

You see yesterday I decided I needed to clean the microwave so I used my tried and true method (see below) to easily clean it up. I was feeling quite pleased with myself as I put the bowl of lemon and lemon water in and hit the 5:00 button...and then promptly forgot about it for 24 HOURS

Yes that's right ladies, I may pick on hubby for his ahem...affinity for seeing the world differently a la Maggot Baskets, but then I go and do this. We're the perfect couple I tell ya! ;)

Remind me to tell you the story of how I used to think cow udders were hot dogs sometime OK? (I'm so smart I'm dumb...my family shakes it's collective head at me often.)

Anyway, in case you want to clean your microwave tomorrow (see what I did there?) -

To clean your microwave easily, slice a lemon in half and squeeze some of the juice into a large microwave safe (but NOT plastic!) bowl full of water. Throw in the lemon halves and nuke for 5 minutes. When done, let it sit a minute or two and then remove bowl carefully and wipe the mess out with a (edit: damp) microfiber cloth. Comes clean like a charm!

Just don't leave it sit for a day like I did. ;)
