8 Microwave Life Hacks You Need To Know

Microwave ovens have been around since the late 40’s. The concept back then and now is pretty much the same – you put a food item in it, press a button or two and wait for the bing sound.  But what you probably didn’t know was how many helpful things your microwave can do other than reheating leftovers.  

Here’s a few. 

1. Prevent Onion Tears

Chop off the ends of an onion and microwave them for 30 seconds.  

2. Restore Crystallized Honey

Remove the lid and heat on 50% power for about 2 minutes. 

3. Unclump Brown Sugar

Place a small dampened paper towel in the box, close it tightly and microwave for 20 seconds. 

4. Get More Juice From Your Lemons and Limes

Microwave a lemon or lime on high power for 10-20 seconds then cut and squeeze. 

5. Harden Your Soft Bread

Wrap a piece of bread in a damp kitchen towel and microwave on high in 10 second bursts.  Check after each burst. 

6. Harden Your Soft Potato Chips

Similar to bread. Place the chips on a paper towel and microwave in 5 second bursts. 

7. Remove Postage Stamps From Envelopes

Place a couple of drops of water on a stamp, microwave for 20 seconds and the stamp will come off without damage.

8. Quickly Clean A Microwave After A Food Explosion

Heat a glass bowl full of water with a small amount of vinegar for 5 minutes. Then wipe with a paper towel.
