Microwave cleaner

This one isn't for eating, but is kitchen related.  A few years back I learned a really simple way to clean out the microwave.  Fill a bowl full of water.  If you have a spare lemon cut it up and put it in the water.  (This doesn't help the cleaning, but does smell extra nice.)  Put the bowl in the microwave and cook on high for 6 minutes or so.  The water needs to come to a boil and keep boiling for the last few minutes.  Don't open the door, but let the water steam away for at least 5 minutes.  Now just wipe it down!  Everything will easily come right off, even the burned popcorn butter, exploded chili, and mystery things in the corners.  Not that my microwave ever looks like that.  ;)
