Then add 1/2 cup of water to the glass bowl or measuring cup. I just filled my measuring cup to the top!
Next, put the glass bowl or the measuring cup in your microwave uncovered. Cook in the microwave uncovered for 5 minutes on high power.
Cooking this mixture will create steam in the microwave that cleans and breaks-up tough stains in the microwave. Be careful when opening the door as steam may escape the microwave door.
After the cook time, remove the bowl of water or the measuring cup. Then use a microfiber towel or cleaning cloth to clean off the steam that has built up on all sides of the microwave and the dirt and debris will be removed with it!
