2-3citrus fruitlemon, lime, orange or grapefruit (I used 2 lemons and 1 grapefruit)
1cupvinegarI like apple cider but any type would do just fine
plain water to cover the citrus fruit
Slice the citrus fruit.
In a large microwave-safe bowl place the citrus and vinegar.
Cover the fruit in water
Turn the microwave on high for several minutes or until the solution boils and the window is steamy (Experiment for the first time. I had to keep mine going for 20 minutes; I set it for 30 minutes first and stopped it when I've noticed the boiling).
Do not open the door but let it sit to cool for 15 minutes before opening the door.
Remove the bowl and wipe out the inside; it will clean very easily.
Clean the rubber gasket around the door too.
If the window is still greasy, apply some of the citrus/vinegar/water mixture from the bowl, leave it to work for a few minutes then wipe clean.
If your microwave is super dirty and this method doesn't clean it completely, clean again with a paste made out of baking soda and water (you shouldn't need this step though). Or run another session of steaming.
