My microwave has gotten really dirty, due to a mishap with a bowl of chili. Anybody got any good tips for cleaning it?
Fill a bowl with water, microwave it for about 15 minutes on high. The steam will loosten the chili and you can wipe it away with paper towels.
Be careful when heating plain water in the microwave.

Yes, do be careful . Use a glass or microwave safe bowl, fill it less than halfway and be careful of steam when opening the door. Wait a minute or two before you start wiping it with paper towels. The steam will not disappear if ypu wait a bit, gives it time to loosen the chili gunk.
