These simple tips will help you to get rid of odors if your rubbish bin stinks.
- First, a good cleaning 1-2 times a week will keep your trash cans and rubbish bins from smelling. After cleaning treat the bin with antibacterial soap or spray it with pure vinegar.
- Wrap vegetable peelings, the rest of food and other organic kitchen waste in several sheets of newspaper before throwing them in the trash. Newspaper absorbs odors and keeps the waste from stinking. Before throwing food in the trash you can also put a layer of crumpled newspaper with some baking soda on it or sprinkle some ground coffee inside the bin.
- For something really smelly use extra bags to tie it up and toss.
