A CLEANING expert has revealed a simple way to get your microwave clean in just 30 minutes and one part you should never forget to wash.

Viewers were shocked to know not only that this part of the microwave existed, but that this same solution works for another appliance.


"Remember to clean the vent under your microwave" the TikTok video read.

The video showed a sink full of water with a mix of "dish soap, vinegar, and hot water" poured into it.

@anxietyscrubs recommends letting the vent sit for 30 minutes in the solution.

"I can't do this with one hand," the voiceover said while hands scrub the grates of the vent.

Another commented, "I had no idea these existed on a microwave," with a shocked face emoji.

The video inspired one person to check another appliance that the solution might work on.

"Out of curiousity," @en.xam said, "I checked to see if my stove hood range one could come off and it did. And I’m soaking and scrubbing as we speak. Thank you!"

A cleaning connoisseur in the comments figured out how to get rid of the scrubbing altogether.

"Add vents to boiling water with baking soda," one user said.

"No scrubbing necessary! Good luck with the rest of the apartment!"
