Tuesday Green Tip

This week you get a 2 for 1 with this post. I love sponges for cleaning, They do a great job and fit nice in the hand. Here is a great tip for keeping it fresh, clean, and sanitized. While doing this you can also do a safe clean of the microwave. This will make even the hardest baked on goop come of easy.

Dirty sponge and microwave.

What you will need:
1 Dirty Sponge
1 Dirt Microwave
1 (microwave safe) Dish
Water (fill bowl 1/2 full
A few squirts of lemon

Clean sponge and microwave!

Put the sponge in the bowl fill 1/2 full of water and add the lemon juice right on the sponge. Place in microwave and cook for 3-6 minutes depending on you microwave. It is going to get very hot and steamy. Let it sit and door stay closed for 15 -20 minutes. Once things have cooled down to where you can touch the sponge, wipe down the inside of the microwave. Everything will come off easy from the steam bath, and smell fresh from the lemon!
