Microwave Cleaning

  • A microwave-safe bowl or cup

  • A dry cloth or paper towels

Mastering Microwave Cleaning

A Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Preparing EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner

Start by preparing a mixture of EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner and water. Follow the product’s instructions for the appropriate dilution ratio. EarthSential’s all-natural, food-grade ingredients make it a safe and effective choice for cleaning your microwave.

Step 2: Microwave Steam Bath

Pour the EarthSential solution into a microwave-safe bowl or cup. Place it in the microwave, and heat it on high for about 3-5 minutes. The steam generated will help loosen the stuck-on grime and food splatters.

Step 3: Wipe Away Dirt

After the heating cycle is complete, carefully remove the hot bowl or cup using oven mitts or a towel. Then, use a clean, damp cloth or sponge to wipe away the softened dirt and stains inside the microwave. The EarthSential solution works wonders in breaking down grime, making it easy to remove.

Step 4: Detail Cleaning

For stubborn spots or lingering residue, you can dip your cloth or sponge in the EarthSential solution and scrub gently. This all-natural cleaner is tough on grime but gentle on your microwave’s interior.

Step 5: Dry and Shine

Finish by drying the inside of the microwave with a dry cloth or paper towels. Ensure there is no moisture left behind.

Maintenance Tips:

  • To prevent future spills, cover your food with a microwave-safe lid or microwave-safe paper towel.
  • Wipe down the microwave after each use with a damp cloth to prevent buildup.

With EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner in your cleaning arsenal, keeping your microwave clean and fresh has never been easier. Its natural ingredients ensure that your appliance remains safe for heating food while sparkling clean. Say goodbye to microwave messes and hello to a pristine appliance in no time!
