Food, napkins, packaging, bottles, and leftovers, among others, are part of the waste consumed daily at home. And their fate ends up being the kitchen dump, which stores them for later to be taken to landfills or dumps. The organic waste is mixed there and it is not uncommon to leave an unpleasant odor. Meet homemade ways to get the bad smell out of the bin.
It is precisely the wastebasket that can be the focus of constraints during visits of friends or relatives, because, due to the accumulation of waste and the rotation of various materials that pass through, the bad smell can persist, even with the periodic removal of garbage. For this to happen, the first step is to adopt the three rule: reduce, reuse, and recycle most of your junk. Plastic, metal, and glass can be recycled. Organic waste can go through the process of home composting or even grinding. Napkins, paper towel, and toothpicks may even go into the compost, but it is not always recommended. Already the remains of cooked meat, they end up having to go to the recycling bin.
How to Smell the Trash
- Try putting a few spoonfuls of baking soda in the bottom of the bin . The alkaline nature of baking soda will absorb unpleasant smells like those of spoiled food, for example. Take advantage to know the diverse uses of baking soda.
- If you do not want to run any risk of the unpleasant smell of the bin coming back or getting worse, add some moist wipes to the bottom of the bin near the baking soda. If you do not have baking soda, coffee grounds also serve this purpose.
- This action is appropriate for those who suffer from a very strong stench coming from the bin . Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spray the inside walls of your bin (if you have peroxide in your hands, apply a few drops). After that, use an old cloth to rub the vinegar into the bin . Finally, wash the inside with hot water.
