Household Tip...

I am always looking for an effective green solution to everyday problems. I swear by this one! It totally works...

Is your microwave suffering from an abnormal amount of build-up and/or your standard cleaning routine isn't cutting it!?

Lemons. Lemons are your solution!

Cut 2 lemons into quarters and place them in a microwave safe bowl, with 4 cups of water. Microwave on high for 5 minutes AND LET STAND FOR 20 MINUTES WITHOUT OPENING THE MICROWAVE DOOR. The citrus-infused steam will penetrate the gunk to the point that you will be able to wipe it off easily with a paper towel. I kid you not.

Once done, pour your lemon solution down your garbage disposal to freshen your sink and pipes, as well.
