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.
