If you’re looking for ways to save money, skipping a restaurant and bringing your lunch to work is a good place to start. And if your office has a break room with a refrigerator and microwave, brown-bagging has never been easier. You can store cold items in the fridge, or heat last night’s leftovers in the microwave.
However, with everyone in the office using the microwave, it can get dirty quick. Your company might have a commercial cleaning company to clean the office and kitchenette, and the contract might include cleaning the inside of the microwave. But if the company only services the office once a week or every other week, food particles and stains can accumulate inside the microwave. Fortunately, there are simple ways to keep the microwave spotless between office cleanings.
If you’re the manager or supervisor, you can require that each employee wipes the inside of the microwave after each use. Even when the microwave appears stain-free, regular wiping reduces stains and keeps the microwave sanitary for everyone. You might leave disinfecting wipes near the microwave to make this task convenient for everyone.
Also, you can reduce stains in the microwave by purchasing a plastic cover designed for the microwave. This inexpensive item prevents food from splattering on all sides of the microwave. After each use, employees can rinse or wash the microwave cover in the break room sink.
