Zero Waste Degreaser

I’ve used lemons to successfully clean both the microwave and the oven.

Before & after✨

  1. Roll a lemon🍋 on the counter a couple of times.
  2. Cut the lemon in half and put it in a microwave safe bowl of water.
  3. Microwave for 1.5 – 2 minutes.
  4. Dip a cotton cloth in the water (you may need to wait a little bit for it to cool down to a temperature you can handle) and wipe! The hotter you can stand the quicker and easier the cleaning.
  5. As long as you don’t get lemon pulp on the cloth and you’re just dabbing in the water there’s no residue.
  6. Compost the lemon!
  7. Wash the cotton cloth with your laundry!
