DIY Kitchen Cleaning Tips - Century Real EstateClean Microwave: The secret to a clean, stain-free & odor-free microwave is to clean it as soon as something spills or after the food is cooked. If there is a sticky mess on the bottom of your oven, sprinkle salt on top, and, after a little while in a hot oven, the spill will turn to ash that can easily be wiped out with a wet cloth. Also, the quickest way to clean a microwave oven is to place a handful of wet paper towels inside and run it on high for 3 minutes.  The steam from towels will soften the grime and you can wipe it clean without a fuss. To deodorize, combine 1 cup of water with ½ a cup of lemon juice in a measuring cup or bowl and heat it on high for 3–5 minutes. Let it stand in the microwave for 5–10 minutes before removing.
