Any time you open the trash can, you find yourself holding your breath to avoid smelling the horrible stench. But how do you get rid of the smell? Mr. Clean Can is here to help! We have some tips and advice for getting rid of that stubborn smell in your trash can!

Clean Your Can!

Many people don’t usually think to clean their trash cans, because let’s face it, who thinks to clean something you throw trash in? However, we are here to let you know that you absolutely should have your trash can cleaned. Not only does it help with the smell, but it can also help prevent you or a loved one picking up any bacteria that could cause illness. But what’s the best way to clean out your trash can?

Leave It to the Professionals

The best way to get rid of that stench is to hire someone else to take care of it for you! Luckily for you, that’s our specialty here at Clean Cans! For only $12 a month, our team will clean your trash can once a month. If you have more than one can you need us to clean, that’s no problem! We will clean additional cans for only $5 each. Not only will we help you by keeping your cans clean, but we also will be helping the environment, since our entire process is eco-friendly.

When you set up can cleaning service with us, we will come by on your scheduled service date to clean your can(s)! From here, you can sit back and relax while we take care of the dirty work.

Do It Yourself

If you’re feeling brave and ready to tackle the stench yourself, we have some tips for you! The first thing to remember before you start this process is that you need to be careful when selecting what cleaning agent you will use. All wastewater from cleaning your can will go down the storm drains on your street, and will eventually end up in rivers, lakes, and other major bodies of water. Therefore, you need to select a cleaner that is environmentally friendly. We recommend using a combination of vinegar and baking soda to clean your can! Just let your can soak, and then use some pressure and a little elbow grease to get to work at getting rid of the smell in your trash can. Prepare to get dirty and wet from the process, so wear some clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.

Whether you decide to set up monthly cleanings with us, or if you decide to clean your cans yourself, we hope that you find something that works for you, and helps you get rid of the smell in your trash can!
