How to Clean Your Microwave Without Harsh Chemicals

June 22, 2016 4:03 pm

From reheating leftovers to warming up bowls of canned soup, your microwave sees a whole lot of messes from its various daily tasks. You may think that you need to use a store-bought cleanser to get out those tough, caked-on stains, but if you want to avoid those harsh chemicals, you can actually make your own cleanser at home. Follow these steps for cleaning your microwave in an all-natural way.

  1. Pour one cup of vinegar into a microwave-safe bowl, and then add one cup of hot water and stir the two together.
  2. Place the bowl with its vinegar solution in the center of the microwave and turn it on. Let it run on average power for 10 minutes.
  3. Keep an eye on the bowl and remove it from the microwave when you notice it starting to boil (likely somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes). Note: Be sure to use an oven mitt, as the bowl will be very hot.
  4. Wet a rag with lukewarm water and give the inside a good wipe-down to remove the now-loosened debris inside.
  5. Once all of the debris is steam cleaned away, create a simple solution of lemon juice and water. Dip another rag into the homemade cleanser and give the microwave another wipe-down to freshen things up.

Fiesta Hut: The Real Thing

June 15, 2016 4:04 pm

Fiesta Hut is the place to go to find terrific homemade Mexican fare in East Rutherford. Located across from Railroad Avenue Park, Fiesta Hut looks like a diner from the outside, because that’s what it used to be! But this family business does not serve diner food. It advertises that only “real” Mexican food is served, and after eating here, it’s hard to argue. First of all, unlike many BYOB establishments in the area, there’s a full bar. And the margaritas are a special favorite with the regulars. Everything on the menu, from the chips and salsa to the tacos, burritos and other entrees are made from scratch.
