Of the many kitchen conveniences in modern life, nothing quite rivals the microwave. It can do everything from heat up leftovers and defrost ground beef to make both bacon and eggs for breakfast and even delectable mug cakes for dessert.
But honestly, they can be such a pain to clean! We've all experienced something accidentally exploding from being heated just a few seconds too long (right?!) or spilling as we try to handle the hot sides of a bowl. Even just the weekly wear and tear can build up and make your machine look and smell, well, gross. Trying to reach in and get every nook and cranny feels impossible... but there's an easy solution!
Believe it or not, one of the best ways to clean a microwave―even the stuck-on grease, gunk, and odors―is steam. It's amazingly effective, as well as free from harsh chemicals. And there's a hilarious little contraption on Amazon that costs less than $7 right now and will make all that magic happen in just a few minutes. Meet the Angry Mama!
This is how this mad little mom works: Simply remove her hair (the top), fill her body with a mixture of vinegar and water following the indicator lines, replace her hair, and pop her in the microwave for seven minutes. Once the microwave is done, let her sit for another two minutes to cool down and remove. Then all you have to do is wipe down the insides with paper towel or a kitchen sponge and voilà! A clean microwave.
Yes, it really is that simple. And yes, this affordable little contraption is reusable and dishwasher safe. So, no matter how many spills and splatters your household creates, she's there to get steaming mad each time! Want to add a pleasant whiff of freshness? Simply squeeze some lemon juice in the mixture before sealing her hair back on.
Many of the 8,000-plus reviews call the Angry Mama everything from a "simple but effective" to a "game changer." Plenty call it "cute" as well, which we can all agree upon. You can buy it in several different color options, each one as equally effective as it is adorable. We never thought we'd say this, but making mama angry might actually be the best solution in the fight to get your microwave clean! Just make sure it's the kind you can buy on Amazon, not an actual human mama. 😂
