- 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.
