There is something truly nauseating about the pungent odors that emit from the curbside bins, most particularly, the trash bin. As with everything in and around our homes, they are in need of cleaning and sanitizing from time to time.
Big Moose Pressure Cleaning would like to offer some tips on advice on cleaning your bins and reducing unpleasant odors.
Avoiding Odors in Your Trash Can:
To avoid odors, freeze your meat waste until garbage day. Contain any food that has expired in a plastic bag. Stick a cheap car air freshener in the bins to help mask odors.
Tips on Keeping your Wheelie Bins Clean:
To deter messes, if possible, line the bottom of your bins with a sheet of cardboard, or a couple layers of flyers or newspapers. Kitty litter also works well absorbing gross garbage juice that lends to odors. On trash day, after your bins have been serviced is the best day to tackle this project if you want to do it yourself. Begin by thoroughly rinsing your bins with a high pressure sprayer attachment for your garden hose. Once satisfied, get your cleaning solution ready.
Bleach: In a 1 gallon bucket, add 1 cup of bleach and fill remaining space of your bucket with water, preferably warm. Using a toilet brush, or a long handled brush (unless you want to go diving) scrub the sides and bottom with pressured, circular motions.
Liquid Dish Soap: Squirt a reasonable amount of soap along the sides and bottom. Use your high pressured nozzle on your hose and conduct a detailed spraying until you hit every nook and cranny and then rinse.
Pine Sol or Lysol: For your concentrated packaging, follow labels directions in preparing your mixture. If already prepared or packaged in a squirt bottle, meticulously spray the sides and bottom. Scrub with your preferred brush. Once your bins have been thoroughly scrubbed or cleaned, rinse well. If necessary, repeat. After you are happy with your work, allow your bins the proper ventilation to air dry.
