How to Save a Damsel in Distress with Green Cleaning


Our superheroes got into quite a few adventures over the weekend. After saving a hopeless neighbor from a spider and rescuing a kitty, they had to help a damsel in distress. And this damsel was no ordinary woman. She had a spell cast on her by a witch who destroyed all the mirrors in her house and cursed her so that she would be unable to leave her home until she could see her reflection again.

Two Men & A Vacuum received a call from the lady, and quickly began to think. “What could be used to reflect the damsel’s image and free her from her prison?” Quickly they thought “The Microwave!”- it’s made of metal on the inside, and when it is clean enough, it can reflect your image just like a mirror would!

The idea was great, a lifesaver. But when Two Men approached the microwave, they found that it was so dirty that the damsel wouldn’t be able to see herself. So they had to think on their feet and figure out a way to clean it with only the things she had at home.

Secret Weapons:

  • 1 Cup of Vinegar
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • 1 Microwave Safe Bowl
  • 1 Non-Scratch Pad


  • Combine 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water in the microwave safe bowl.
  • Put the bowl in the microwave without a lid.
  • Microwave for 8-9 minutes.
  • Open the microwave and remove the bowl.
  • Take the non-scratch pad and dip it in the solution.
  • Use a little elbow grease and voila! 


The damsel was able to see her reflection again, and was freed from the horrible curse. Once more Two Men & A Vacuum saved the day using homemade green products.

We hope you enjoyed the adventure. We will see you next week when we will share another story with a surprise green cleaning recipe.
