Clean your Microwave Easy and Fast


I'm chipping away at my spring cleaning tasks! :) Today I knocked out the microwave. It wasn't too bad. But I did find a whole pancake in the back. Embarrassing! We generally use the convection part of the microwave more than the microwave. But nothing grosses me out more than opening it to find it … [continue]
