At home I usually use soap and water, but our microwave at school in the staff kitchen is so totally, completely gross I'm wondering about wipes. Actually, the whole kitchen area is pitiful, but the microwave is the worst
. No one cleans it after use, even though we're all told the custodians won't do this. I am wondering if I cleaned it and put a canister of wipes next to it with a sign to clean up after yourself if it's okay to use chemical cleaners inside a microwave
There're so easy to use.
The disinfectant wipes say to rinse with clean water for surfaces that will be in contact with food. When I looked it up online, several sources say to nuke a cup of water for a few minutes (the steam loosens the gunk), then wipe out. But I know no one is going to do that and I am not charitable enough to be the self-appointed micro maid.
