Does your trash can stink? Use these handy tips to clean and deodorize your trash can.
Hose it off thoroughly
Empty the trash can, take it outside, and spray it with a hose.
Use a cleaning solution to clean and disinfect the garbage can
There are many products on the market that you can use for this. Clorox Clean-Up, Mr. Clean, Lysol Multi-purpose Cleaner with Bleach – they are all excellent choices. You can also make your own cleaner by mixing ¾ cup of chlorine bleach and one tablespoon of laundry into one gallon of warm water.
Scrub, rinse, dry
Use a toilet bowl brush or any type of scrub brush with a handle to thoroughly scrub the inside and outside of your trash can. Rinse it out thoroughly and then pat it dry.
