I cleaned my microwave using a lemon.
Photo of microwave before cleaning below. I am fairly certain no one has ever shit-socked the microwave, although the photo would indicate otherwise.
The materials used are below. I thought it would be nice to use a bowl made for holding popcorn as the object to hold the lemon juice, adding a subtle level of irony to the project.

When I do these new things, I prefer it when they yield positive results, mostly so they appear less lame. I think the author of the Wikihow post exaggerated just a bit when h/she said, “Grab a soft dishcloth and wipe that microwave out with unparalleled ease.” Firstly, my microwave is positioned on a cart very low to the ground, so it wasn’t with much ease that I bended my fatass down to even begin the project. Secondly, the splattered crap glued to the walls of the microwave did not wipe off as easily as I had hoped. I gave up when my legs started to cramp.
