    Chad's Crappy Corner

    Chad is continuing his series for January of 'gifts he received for the holidays'.

    This week he reviews the Angry Mama Microwave Oven Cleaner


    Here's what Amazon said about it: Use steam to clean the crud from your microwave! just add vinegar and water, then microwave for 7 minutes. The steam comes out of mama's head and softens microwave dirt and stains for easier cleaning! to use: first remove Angry mama's hair and head from body, then add vinegar and water to fill lines on the body. Add a squeeze of lemon Juice (or essence) to Liquid for a pleasant odor.


    And Chad's take: Chad did a demo showing how you put water in Angry Mama and then add vinegar. Then Chad microwaved it for 7 minutes. At the end of 7 minutes Chad said the kitchen had a strong smell of vinegar so walked into another room. It smelled of vinegar too, as did the whole house. Even his cats kept putting their noses in the air trying to figure where the smell was coming from. As far as cleaning goes? As you'll see in the video of this week's show Chad's oven was pretty clean to begin with. But he did get some stains on the oven walls out rather easily. His verdict?: This is just a so-so gadget. And the price? Chad paid about $5. But if you following the Amazon link below you'll see it sells for dozens of prices from under a dollar to more than $20! It looks like many companies buy the same product and market for what they like. If you want to buy 10,000 of them, they're under a buck!
