Spring Cleaning Garbage

Day 12, Trash Can and Recycling Bin

It’s so easy for trash cans and recycling bins to become dirty as items spill or touch the surface as they are placed in them. A clean, damp sponge sprinkled with baking soda will do the trick, removing dirt and odors.

Maintenance

To keep the trash can and recycling bin smelling fresh, wipe the insides with a lemon from time to time. You can toss the used lemon or lemon peels into the trash as well for added freshness.
