This worked really well. I had a lemon that needed to be used up, so sliced it up and added it to the solution. The microwave smelled really clean too. Thanks Ciocia Laura for a nice keeper. Made for My 3 Chefs.


  1. Please ingredients in microwave proof (glass) bowl.
  2. Place in High for 5 minutes or until boiling.
  3. Let sit until liquid cools, remove, then wipe clean. (Condensation will loosen caked on food, lemon deodourises.
  4. White vinegar may be substituted for lemon juice. Lemon peels may also be tossed in with water mixture for an even more pleasant small.
