Cleaning Quick Tip: The Microwave Comes After the Coffee Pot

Welcome back!

I hope you hung onto the gross vinegar from cleaning the coffee maker. We have one more job for it before you use it in the garden.

Put the yucky vinegar in some kind of microwavable container. I use a glass measuring cup.

Turn it on long enough to let the vinegar boil like crazy. Oh yes, a steamy, bubbly mess. That’s what you want.

Now just let it sit for about 10 minutes with the door shut. You may have to open and close the door or press clear to get the little “I’m finished noise to shush. But keep that door closed.

After 10 minutes, just clean up the mess. With beautiful ease all the baked on mystery stuff just wipes right up, leaving
a sparkly fresh smelling microwave.

A mess to create spotless cleaning, just my style. Don’t you think?

If there’s any of that nasty old vinegar left in the container, after you boiled it like a mad person, save it for one final task in the garden. I’ll tell you about that one another time.

Talk about bang for your buck! And no harsh chemicals to boot.

  1. I knew about the vinegar in the microwave trick, but didn’t know about the coffee pot trick. Good one. I’ll have to try that out, because I love a good cup of tasty joe!

  2. I couldn’t find a contact email for you, but just submitted to your carnival. The URL it has listed for you is this one: which looks to be a mistake.

    Just wanted to let you know.
