Easy(and cheap) way to clean the microwave

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that our microwave was nasty dirty. I put cleaning it off another couple of weeks until yesterday when I decided it was time to just get it over with. I started scrubbing with a sponge and gunked the sponge up with what can only be described as sludge and scratched the paint off the door(not cool man). I was about to give up when I remembered something I had seen on How clean is your house – if you ever need motivation to get off your butt and clean this show will do it. Anyway, on there they said the easiest way to clean a messy microwave is to get a bowl, put lemon juice in it, and microwave for 5 minutes. I was skeptical but I did it. After the 5 minutes I took the bowl out and wiped and stuff just came right off NO SCRUBBING. Now don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all pretty and shiny but it was way better then scrubbing that crap off. After about 5 more times there were definitely parts that were sparkling and there are still parts that need to be cleaned some more. For me, I’m a lazy cleaner on my best day and this worked great. I could set the microwave for 5 minutes go do whatever and then come back and wipe and then repeat.
