This is probably the most boring blog post in the history of blogging, but here goes…
I’m not really the best house cleaner. As this blog proves, lolling about is my primary hobby. Cleaning really gets in the way of my lolling about time. So I try to the do the basic stuff (vacuuming, laundry, dusting) once a week or so. Deeper cleaning stuff like microwaves, fans, etc just don’t happen that often. Maybe once every 3 years. I know, I’m terrible.
A few weeks ago I saw a tip on Pinterest for cleaning your microwave. Fill a microwave-safe bowl with some water and a tablespoon or so (why measure?!) of vanilla. Put the lovely smelling liquid in the microwave and turn on for two minutes. Let it sit for a minute or so and then wipe the inside of the microwave down. The water creates steam and the vanilla makes it not smell like three years worth of microwave splatter. Worked like a charm.
Although I admit, I did re-microwave a couple of times. Once to make sure I got everything and another time just because I liked the smell.
Now who has any good tips on cleaning an oven?
