This is going to be the cleanest month of your life! Every single day I’ll post a new item to clean in your house.  Here’s the trick – while you only have to clean one thing a day, you have to REALLY clean it.  I’m not talking about the wipe down, spray with febreze clean we usually do.  SCRUB it!

Day 1: Clean your microwave and oven.

These are the worst!  And we always avoid them.  For the microwave, my trick is to put a bowl of water in the microwave for a few minutes.  The steam will loosen the dirt and it washes right off!

The oven is a whole different battle.  I don’t have a great trick, but I make a paste with dish soap, baking soda, and water.  I put it on the really tough grease spots and let it sit for half an hour, and then scrub and wipe clean!

Day one is complete!  If you don’t count the wait time (when you could be doing something else) we’re talking like 5-10 minutes of cleaning!

Great job!!
