I long for the day when me and my bum will be seated for more than one minute at a time. Sigh.
Oh. My. Holy. Heck.
My head began to spin. My heart pounded rapidly. My lungs were quivering. Witnesses (roommates) said I began to twitch and speak in tongues.
What?!?! Why?!?! How?!?!
Needless to say, I rarely used the microwave after this unfortunate microwave experience. Even after I thoroughly cleaned it and performed an exorcism on it. (flashback shudder)
So just in case one of you are experiencing the above microwave scenario, hear are a few tips.
- mix a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar and zap it in the microwave for around 4 or 5 minutes. The heat and moisture will loosen the old burrito explosions and other food particles. This makes it so easy to just wipe the inside with a soapy dish rag. The vinegar will take away any horrific stench that resides inside of your microwaves.
- instead of a water/vinegar solution, I like to use a water/lemon juice solution. Smells so much better than old bean burritos. I read that one lady will sprinkle some cinnamon in the water.
- for stubborn stains you can use a Magic Eraser. They are truly magic!
- another tip: clean your microwave often or even better, immediately after you cook something that splatters.
Believe me, your eyes and nose will thank you.
The plan for this week is for me to hopefully clean the pot shelf in my entry way. I'm totally revamping it and have been buying nick knacks to decorate it with! I'm also beginning to decorate for fall and Halloween! Oh how I love thee...fall and Halloween!
I have big plans for the season! Give aways, a tutorial or two, fall/Halloween decorating! I can't wait!
