    Put the potatoes in a bowl and then into your sink. Turn on the cold water tap and wash them thoroughly. Make sure all the dirt is washed away and your potatoes are clean. Then take a microwave bowl and put it in your microwave oven. Usually all microwaves have an option of “baked potatoes” but if your microwave does not have that option then simply put the cooking time to ten minutes and start the microwave.
