Microwaves are essential to British kitchens. Microwave ovens heat the molecules directly using radiation, rendering them much faster at heating than an oven or pan. In 1994, just 63 percent of Brits could say they owned a microwave. But that number made a significant leap in 2018 when it was recorded that 93 percent of British kitchens had a microwave. The first microwave was available for domestic use in the late 1960s, starting a trend that would continue on for decades to come.
The simple and stress free way to clean your microwave
Microwave cleaning is undoubtedly a household chore that not many revel in.
Burnt food, splattered sauce and spilled remnants of meals can all contaminate a microwave.
But don’t worry, fussy cleaning of your microwave oven is a thing of the past with this simple hack.
When you open, make sure you’re very careful with the bowl as it will be very hot.
And don’t forget to clean the door too, as this step can often be overlooked. Wipe it down with a towel.
Dip the corner of your towel in the lemon water and scrub until the stubborn dirt spot comes off.
With a cloth or sponge, wipe the inside of your microwave clean and to get rid of any excess moisture.
The dirt should lift quickly and easily, leaving you with nothing but a sparkling clean microwave, while the lemon will give it a nice smell.
