I know what you’re thinking.
We CAN’T be cleaning the outdoor garbage can today! NOOOO!!!
But this is a once a year task. Maybe twice a year. Even though you lovingly take trash secured tightly in garbage bags to the large outdoor trash can, something inevitably happens to them. The trash bags get holes. Those crazy teenagers through trash in without a bag. Something spills. And it STINKS! It’s disgusting!!!
So every once in a while, we really should clean the outside trash can. Today is that day.
I know, I know. You’ll probably have to hold your nose the entire time. But it will be worth it!! Just like it was with those other trash cans 🙂
Clean your outdoor garbage can
Those super large outdoor trash cans can be a bit tricky to clean. Thankfully there is a an easy way:
- Place your trash can in an area of the yard/street/driveway that it can get wet.
- Squirt a bit of dish soap in it.
- Use a sprayer attached to a hose and spray that trash can down!
- Empty the water.
- Repeat if necessary.
It will suds up heavily, but the heavy sprayer will almost always work to remove the grime on the sides and bottom. Only in extreme cases will you need to get a scrub brush to physically clean the garbage can.
So, you can get a sparkling clean, almost new garbage can while barely touching the trash can itself. Holla!!
Alright, I know this task isn’t the most fun…but it’ll be worth it. Let me know in the comment section or on Facebook when you’re finished!!
