What Coffee Grounds Can Do For Your Microwave
Microwaves are prone to burnt meals or accidental spills, leading to lingering, unpleasant aromas. Instead of using chemical microwave cleaners to remedy this,
use coffee grounds.
Coffee grounds have odor-neutralizing properties that allow them to absorb foul scents, making them an eco-friendly and effective solution for refreshing
your microwave’s interior.
Coffee grounds can also be a natural abrasive that help scrub away stubborn food residues without scratching the microwave’s interior.
Collect two tablespoons
of already-used coffee grounds. Transfer these grounds into a microwave-safe container, like a bowl or cup, along with a
half cup of water.
Place this container inside the microwave and set it to high power. Heat it for 2-3 minutes until the coffee grounds emit their aroma.
Wipe the microwave’s interior with a damp cloth to remove all residue. You can also put a bowl of dry coffee grounds in the microwave and let it sit for a few hours or overnight.
