What could be worse than trash cans that smell bad and smells that permeate the interior? To avoid this, you can install a few things. Starting with proper waste sorting. What causes bad odors in your trash cans is organic waste. However, most of them can be composted. Also, if you have the opportunity, install a composter for this purpose. When used correctly, it is odorless. You can place it outside, at the end of the garden, or on the balcony if you live in an apartment. Some composters are also specially designed for indoor use (see right page). However, be careful, not all organic waste can be composted. Also, remember to rinse containers with clean water that leave traces of food.
An essential element of the home, baking soda has a deodorizing effect. Sprinkle the bottom of the trash can with a large tablespoon of baking soda to prevent bad odors.
Like baking soda, coffee grounds can absorb unwanted odors inexpensively. Again, just put some in the bottom of the trash can, right in the bag.
If you have cats and trash at home, take the opportunity to throw them in the trash! This is a simple and effective way to combat unwanted odors and absorb moisture.
Lemon, orange or even grapefruit, citrus fruits have a strong deodorizing effect. Of course, the point is not to throw the fruit, its pulp or juice into the garbage, but to use its peel.
