However, over time, the microwave gets covered with burned food residue, oil and dirt. Therefore, it is important to clean it thoroughly from time to time.

Fill your microwave bowl with water and squeeze the juice from a few lemon wedges. Add the squeezed lemon wedges as well. Put the bowl in the microwave for three minutes.
