Plastic trash cans are easy to clean and keep odor free, with grocery bags helping to lower trash liner expenses, all this adds up to make this type of trash container one of the more popular ones. By emptying the bag daily, there is no chance of an odor building up. A useful tip is to make sure the trash liner fits the can and is not so small that the bag slides down, allowing food and odor to accumulate throughout the day. Also, hose the trash can down outside on a daily basis if it needs it, while using a sponge with dishwater liquid to clean the stains that remain.
Spring Fever: The best way to get rid of the trash can smell? Get rid of it from the source. Be more prudent with your waste materials. Put things away as soon as you're done using them. Throw things away as soon you know you won't use them. Everyday maintenance is the key to a breathable, livable home.
