Here's how to do it:
Using a vegetable brush, scrub and clean the potatoes. Wash them under cold water, but don't dry them. Pierce them with a fork several times.
Wrap each of them in a paper towel and place in the microwave. If you're making multiple potatoes, try to space them evenly apart.
Microwave on high following this chart:
1 potato ~ 6-7 minutes
2 potatoes ~ 9-12 minutes
3 potatoes ~13-16 minutes
4 potatoes ~ 18-22 minutes
Large potatoes may take a little longer.
Remove the potato from the microwave. Leaving it in the paper towel, wrap in aluminum foil.
Let sit 5-10 minutes.

Unwrap and enjoy!
