Garbage Odor Control Tips

iStock_000014699924_MediumWe know that keeping garbage cans odor-free can be tough.  However, with a few simple steps, you can help prevent odors and keep your home smelling fresh.  Here are a few tips to help you control garbage can odors at home.

Odor Control Tips:

  • Baking Soda –  Baking soda is great for many purposes.  Just as it absorbs odors in your fridge, it can absorb odors in your garbage, too!  Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda in the bottom of your trash can to help absorb stinky odors.
  • Bleach – When you need a tough disinfectant, use bleach.  While bleach has its own strong smell, it will also kill any germs.  Just make sure that the bleach won’t damage the finish on your can first.
  • Dryer Sheets – Just like with baking soda, dryer sheets make a great anti-odor tool.  Add a dryer sheet to your trash can to prevent stinky smells.
