Spring Clean the Kitchen Trash Can
Okay…remember when we cleaned the bathroom trash can? At first you thought that was ka-razy. But, after you cleaned it, your feedback was overwhelmingly positive! You didn’t realize how much hidden gunk was stuck on it until you looked closely.
Well, the same will probably be true for your kitchen trash can. It doesn’t matter how careful you are, there’s always a leak, a spill, or so much trashed stuffed in the can that last night’s food scraps stick to the top of the lid. The kitchen trash eventually stinks and becomes uber gross and sticky…even though it’s lined with a trash can.
So, today let’s spring clean the trash can!
Here are a few options to simplify the process:
- If you have a small trash can, you could stick it in the dishwasher.
- If it’s somewhat warm outside, you could take it out, squirt dishsoap in it and use the sprayer on the garden hose to clean it out. This is my personal favorite since minimal touching is involved.
- You could try a similar approach in the bathtub or shower, especially if you have a shower head sprayer. It will give you a good excuse to scrub the tub afterwards!
- The last option is to get an old sponge, scrub brush, or washcloth and just clean it out with your hands. If your trash can is just slightly dirty, this may be the quickest option.
As always, let me know in the comments or on Facebook when you’re finished!! Anyone who completes this task is an official rock star!!
