I’ve got to be honest. I don’t particularly like cleaning of any kind. I do it, because I dislike living in squalor more, but it’s definitely not something I relish.
One of the most irksome cleaning tasks for me is the microwave.
Microwaves are pretty much universally ignored until they can’t be ignored anymore. There is food baked onto the sides. The glass plate is streaky and splattered, and the front is probably covered in oil from stovetop cooking.
Cleaning microwaves is just a nasty and unpleasant job.
One way to make it much easier is to get a microwave cover to put inside.
I put this in our own home a few years ago. The change was drastic and nearly instantaneous. I had a beautifully clean microwave for months on end, rather than just a couple days at a time, like before.
Plus, whenever the microwave cover gets dirty, I can just stick it in the dishwasher and be done with it. It’s literally changed my cleaning life!
And the best part is that you can buy a microwave cover for less than $10. There’s no excuse for not having one! See here for a selection of covers.
