So you have two bowls that you want to microwave, but only one fits, and you don’t have enough time to microwave both. What do you do? Stack them on top of each other. Simply place one bowl on the tray and then a dish over it. Proceed to place another bowl on top of that dish. Think of it as a bowl sandwich. The bowl is the bread while the plate is the pbj. Good luck with your midterms this week folks!

Life Hack: Cleaning your Microwave

Is the mess in your microwave making you scared? It’s making us scared too. Here’s an easy way to clean yours!

Step 1: Get a bowl and fill it up with one to two cups of water, and then add one to two tablespoons vinegar.

Step 2: Add a toothpick to the water so that the mixture can properly boil in the microwave. WARNING: Without this step, the liquid could possibly explode. You don’t want this, do you? Now, go get that toothpick. Go on. We’ll wait.

Step 3: Put the bowl in the microwave and close the door. Microwave for 5 minutes and after the timer goes off, keep the door closed for another minute so the steam can do its magic.

Step 4: Open the door and CAREFULLY take out the bowl of water and vinegar. NOTE: The bowl will be hot.

Step 5: If you have a turntable tray, remove it and wash it in the sink. Once the turntable is removed, wipe down the rest of the microwave with a sponge dipped in the liquid. The gross bits stuck to the microwave should come off easily!

And that’s it! A super simple way to clean your microwave and make the world a better place. Now, clean your microwave.
