Full Answer

The appropriate amount of time to turn on the microwave with the Glisten scrubber inside depends on the unit's wattage. The heat from the microwave activates the foaming powder on the scrubber. Then, during the additional three minutes the scrubber remains inside the microwave with the door closed, it releases steam that helps loosen any food residue. After three minutes have passed, it is important to make sure the scrubber is cool to the touch before using it to wipe down the microwave's interior. Lastly, dispose of the used scrubber in the trash, and use a damp paper towel or cloth to wipe away any foam that remains inside of the microwave.
