Cue this pin.
Well I happen to have a butt load of vinegar here from my science teacher days and a dirty microwave, lets do this!!!
Note: She lists a toothpick as an optional supply. I would suggest a jackhammer if the grime in your microwave has the sheer stubborn staying power mine had.
Here is before, and I swear it was worse that it looks. By a lot, I am not even trying to be all "oh it was just a mess from the night before!" nope, y'all I barely every clean it and stuff blows up in that thing all the time. It was bad, the camera adds ten pounds but subtracts a years worth of slobbery. Oh, and the marks you DO see are semi permanent, I swear.
I should have taken before and after pictures of me. They would have been something like this ...
|Before ... and ... After|
The original poster says she only had to zap the vinegar once. Well, I lost count after five 2 minute increments. Or maybe the stench just killed enough brain cells I couldn't count any higher, hard to know for sure. Seriously. It was the stickiest crap ever, it was like trying to take a tattoo off with a dry baby butt wipe, thus why it was still on there after all this time and my paltry attempts at cleaning that proceeded this one.
I found that when I moved the cup directly under or next to the section I was focusing on it made it a lot easier to clean that part. This is why I had to do it several times, slow and stinky but effective.
|In case the whole cup in the microwave thing was hard to understand.|
This is for the visual learners.
Gagging the whole time I did it and while I snapped those pictures, but I must say, I am impressed. I am also annoyed I didn't have the wherewithal to try this when it was nice outside because I'd kill a small village to open a damn window up and ventilate this place. The pin tellith no lie, it works, but oy vey it smelled worse than I expected for a little while!
Of to pin "how to get rid of vinegar smell" ...
