Cleaning your microwave oven effectively is harder than you think! Ivette shares her tips and tricks for deep-cleaning your microwave.

  • Open and remove the plate; leave the plate in sink and spray with Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner.
  • Don't leave for more than 5 minutes.
  • Don't spray Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner in microwave—​ spray on cloth
  • Remove any food or debris.
  • Start cleaning from top, walls, bottom.
  • With the wet towel, clean from the inside out.
  • If there are any corners that are really dirty, use a spatula or a screwdriver covered with a microfiber to reach all the dirty spots in corners, door and buttons.
  • Wash the plate with Seventh Generation Dish Soap.
  • Dry and place it back.
