Zep Microwave Cleaner - Does it Work

Disclosure Statement

I like cleaning.  I know, I’m odd.  But for the most part I love cleaning.  Now I don’t love it as much as I used to, but I still get so much satisfaction in getting things cleaned.  As you could probably tell from my earlier post, My Secret Cleaning Behavior.  Because I am such a cleaning machine and pride myself on having a clean home and a welcoming smelling home, I’m always on the lookout for new products to try to make cleaning the home easier and even better.

So when Crowdtap had a sample and share for a new microwave cleaner, I hoped that I could nab it to try it out.  And nab it I did!  I received the Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner to test out from Zep and Crowdtap.  It’s been sitting here for me to try for about a week, but I hadn’t gotten around to using it until last night.  

Zep Microwave Cleaner - Does it Work

My microwave was a mess, it hadn’t been cleaned in forever and desperately needed a good cleaning.  I had looked at the mess for months and each time I opened the microwave I would say to myself I really need to clean that, but that would quickly leave my mind shortly after stepping away from the microwave.

So receiving this Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner finally forced me to clean that mess of a microwave.  Thankfully.

The Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner claims to be an easy way to clean and freshen your microwave in minutes. While making it easy to remove those baked-on foods.  

All you do is spray the Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner in the microwave where you are wanting to clean.  Shut the door and run the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.  Let cool a bit before opening the door and wiping down the inside with a paper towel or cloth.

We did this and the first run through didn’t seem to get it very well, so we sprayed some more inside the microwave and ran it again.  This time it was slightly easier to wipe down the baked-on food, but we still had to scrub quite a bit.  It wasn’t very easy as claimed, but it did finally clean the microwave well.

I ended up giving it a 6 out of 10 stars.  It worked okay, but I wouldn’t say I’d buy it again.

If you’d like to check out the video I made for it, you may check it out below.  I hate making videos, so hopefully it was okay but I needed to do it for completing my challenge for this and thought you all might like to view it as well.

  • this reminds me that i need to clean my microwave soon too. oops. i’ve heard you should microwave a bowl of water so it’s all steamy in there and then wipe it out.

    • That is what I normally do with some lemon and white vinegar – works much better I think.

    thanks for letting me know about this product. I need to clean my microwave more often. I do lemon in water or vinegar in a bowl and then run it for a minute that usually loosens up all of the gunk and cleans pretty easy.

    • Tis what I normally do and I swear it works better. I just need to learn to do it more 😉

  • I found the EASIEST way to clean my microwave….put a mug of water in for 2 minutes, then after it beeps, let is sit for 10 minutes without opening the door. Then after the 10 minutes, everything is all steamed and soft so you can just wipe it off with a damp cloth 🙂

    • Oh looks like everyone else said pretty much the same thing, lol.

    • yep and truly works better. I had hopes that this would be truly a miracle product.
