I use the boil water method.  Put a cup of water in there, cook for 5 minutes then wipe.  I haven't found a better or easier way.  :)

We don't use our microwave often so I only have to clean it about once a month or so.

I put 1 cup of white vinegar in a dish and boil it for 3-5 minutes, then wipe it out. I do that at least every other week or more if something spills.

Dish soap & water. Everytime there's visible crumbs, splatters, or spills I wipe it down. I have to. Most ppl regularly use the stove or oven for meals; I regularly use the microwave.

 I do this but add a little baking soda to the water, I hate cleaning the microwave though.

I just wipe it out when I wash the dishes. We rarely use it and wipe spills or explosions immediately.
