User @mama_mila_ is well known on TikTok these days. As a mother of two, she’s accustomed to tough cleaning processes, and her account is chock full of life hacks, too. Our dirty and grimy microwaves need some help and the solution that this mother provides is as simple as it gets.

She simply combines one teaspoon of washing detergent with a cup of water. The cup is placed in the microwave for four minutes and then the inside is wiped with a clean cloth. That’s all it takes to have your microwave looking totally spotless again. Who knew we didn’t need to disassemble the whole thing and use tons of elbow grease?

“Gently wipe the microwave and watch the grime slide off,” she writes.
