Step 1: Use the clean, damp sponge to remove any crumbs or recent spills from the microwave. Tip You can help keep your microwave clean by wiping up any spills the minute they happen with soapy water and a clean cloth or sponge. Step 2: Fill the microwavable bowl with two cups of water and place in the center of the oven. Step 3: Heat the water in the oven for three minutes, or until it boils and produces steam. Tip If your microwave stinks, add half a cup of lemon juice to the water before boiling. Step 4: Let the water cool and the steam loosen food particles for five minutes, then carefully remove the bowl. Step 5: If your oven has a tray, remove it, wash it in soapy water, and set it aside to dry. Step 6: Use a damp cloth to wipe the inside of your oven. Step 7: Place the tray back in your oven. Step 8: Spray the outside of your oven with the all-purpose kitchen spray and wipe it clean with the other damp cloth. Now you can go back to letting the oven do all the work for a while.
