9. Clean your microwave

Getting your microwave clean is a two-step process: First, fill a glass bowl with a cup of water and 1/4 cup of vinegar. Set it inside the microwave and turn it on high for five minutes. After it is cool enough, use a cloth dipped into the mixture to wipe the inside of the microwave.
