HOW TO CLEAN A TRASH CAN
What You Need
As you can imagine, the kitchen trash can is the catchall to a smorgasbord of food drippings, greasy wrappers, food waste, and maybe even a rogue dirty diaper. Despite your best efforts, sometimes these messes sneak through or simply miss your trash bags altogether.
Dish soap is useful for removing grease and leftover food on pots and pans, but may not be heavy-duty enough for leftover garbage grime. White vinegar can certainly deodorize, but will not do much in the cleaning and degreasing department.
Clean, degrease, and deodorize your kitchen trash can all in one step with Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner Lemon Scent. The versatile cleaner removes grease and grime while simultaneously deodorizing your kitchen and getting rid of lingering food smells.
We know it would be unrealistic to recommend you clean your kitchen trash can after every trash day, so we’ll give you a little wiggle room and suggest wiping it down about once every four to six weeks.
We recommend wearing rubber gloves to avoid accidentally touching any unidentified kitchen garbage gunk.
TIP: There are numerous methods for odor elimination and prevention between deep cleanings. A sprinkle of baking soda in the bottom of plastic cans can help absorb lingering smells. Other alternatives include dryer sheets and cotton balls drizzled with drops of essential oils.
