Well, there's good news and there's bad news.
The good news is that my shoulder is healed enough that I can now resume doing some heavy cleaning that's been put off.
The bad news is that now I can resume the heaving cleaning that's been put off.
The first thing on my list was the grunge collected in the microwave-convection oven. There does not seem to be a cleaner made for these, so I tackled it the old fashioned way.
First I set a bowl of vinegar in the oven and heated it on high for five minutes, letting the steam build up and coat the sides.
Then I dumped some baking soda in a shallow dish and added just enough water to form a paste. It's amazing what these two ingredients can perform.
Since the dentist is kind enough to give us these nice toothbrushes every time we visit, I used one of these to get into the nooks and crannies.
Along with some good old scrubbing with a rag and lots of rinsing it is now shiny clean.
The only problem now is I hate to use it and get it all dirty again.
Thankfully I don't have to do all the cleaning alone. Gracie is always there to lend a helping paw. Here she's helping me put away some groceries.
Long Live the Queen
