      Love it, Love it, LOVE IT!!!! This was recommended for inclusion in the 2010 Member's Picks Cookbook and I finally had the chance to try it. Worked like a charm in not only cleaning the microwave but getting that disgusting microwave popcorn and pizza stink out of it! Used a lemon that I had zested and squeezed for a recipe; had 2 cups of water in a 4 cup glass measuring cup. Boiled it for a good 5 minutes; left it inside for 10 to cool down and for the steam to continue. Wiped the entire surface clean and 3 hours later, still NO stink from popcorn or pizza! I plan on doing this method every single time that I am using lemons to bake with; great way to recycle them down to the last bits & pieces! Thanks, Charishma!!!

      This works great! I usually clean my microwave the same way, but with vinegar instead of lemon. The lemon certainly makes it smell much better, lol. After I cleaned the microwave, I dumped the lemon in the garbage disposal to clean it and make it smell better too! Thanks Charishma for a nice keeper. Made for I Recommend Tag.
