A neat trick I learned today
You know how tips are - some are worthwhile, others are a waste. Today I read that placing a cup of water in the microwave on High for several minutes will make cleaning the microwave a breeze. The steam from the water loosens the stuck on stains. Yes, it's easy to say, "Wipe the microwave with a damp cloth after every use." But I'm not that conscientious. So I put a pyrex cup with water in the microwave and turned it on for 5 minutes. I then took a wet cloth and the spatters wiped up easily. It took more time to heat the water and create steam than it did to wipe the microwave clean as new! Now if I could just get the ink stains off my bedroom carpet from where Morgan chewed up two pens when I wasn't watching. The Oxyclean method didn't work.
Born and raised in Pensacola, Florida (Escambia High Class of '66), I have lived in Rochester, NY since 1974. Throughout my blog, in pictures and words, I will share my journey through life. I am a person with many interests, traveling, bicycling, kayaking and canoeing, sporting clays, target shooting, spending time with family, friends, and my Labrador Retrievers, Morgan and Bailey, smoking meat in my Weber smoker, to name just a few. I am a Conservative Republican and a strong believer in Second Amendment Rights. Feel free to stop by often and leave a comment. I enjoy hearing from those who find their way to my blog and through blogging, I've made friends all over the world.
