How to remove stains from a microwave

Stains in a microwave are hard to remove when they have been sitting there for too long and they have hardened. One thing is for sure – they are not impossible to be cleaned. You need to do some things to soften them first. Here are some things you can do.

What you will need?

Grab the following:
A bowl (a microwaveable one)
Lemon Juice or Baking Soda

The process

Grab the bowl and fill it with hot water. Add some lemon juice or baking soda.
Then put it in the microwave and heat for a couple of minutes. The steam that’s created from the mixture will soften all of the stains.
Proceed with removing the bowl and wiping the inside of the microwave with a cloth.
If there are still stains that you can’t remove – repeat the process.

What to do after?

Sometimes when you remove a stain you are left with areas that are yellow. You can get rid of that as well.

What will you need?

A cloth
Nail Polish Remover

The Process

Put some nail polish on the cloth (or cotton ball) and begin wiping the yellow area.
When you are done, wash the inside of the microwave with soap and water and make sure you remove the nail polish remover.


The cleaning technicians at Monster Cleaning do not advise for anyone to clean their microwave with chemical cleaners. Why? Well, exactly because they contain too many chemicals that you might not remove fully which means that they will transfer to your food or drinks (and this is not good for your health).
