Microwave, the poor man's autoclave

Our rental is a “Suite” (former office space above a garage with king bed, full bath and fridge/microwave/coffee maker/toaster etc. NO Kitchen, no dishwasher). During Covid we started using the microwave to both dry and sterilize dishes once washed. Four wine classes and a couple of ceramic coffee mugs at 4 minutes end up too hot to initially handle.


I was putting the kitchen scrubby sponges in the microwave to get more uses out of them. Even easier – I now toss them in the washing machine with the bedspread.

I’ve cleaned non-clothes items in the washer (small plastics in a net bag) and non-kitchen utensil items (baseball caps top rack) in the dishwasher. Don’t recommend dishes in the washing machine, however.
