Baking soda and activated charcoal will help get rid of the odor in the trash can

Of all the sources of unpleasant odors in the kitchen, the trash can is the most annoying. Leave it out for a few extra hours and even a small handful of organic matter will turn into a source of stench. It may not be so easy to get rid of it by simply emptying the bin.

OBOZREVATEL tells you how to avoid the appearance of an unpleasant odor from the trash. This method will not just mask the problem but prevent it from occurring. You only need one simple, inexpensive product that is available in almost every kitchen.

This product has disinfectant properties, which means it will inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause odors. It also deodorizes well. We are talking about ordinary baking soda.

To use it to eliminate odor from the trash can, just pour a few tablespoons of baking soda on the bottom. It will absorb excess moisture, fight bacteria, and prevent odors.

Activated carbon also has similar properties. A few tablets will be enough to keep the air fresh in the kitchen.

Both baking soda and charcoal can also be hung in a cloth bag under the sink. In this way, they will not only absorb odors but also capture excess moisture from the air. And this is the prevention of mold growth. But the filling of these bags will need to be changed periodically. The frequency depends on your humidity level. Just be guided by the physical properties of the product: as soon as it becomes denser, replace it with a fresh one.
