Ever walk into a room and say to yourself, “What is that smell?” Only to find out that it is your smelly trash can? I was hoping that this pin from The Good Wife will solve all of my stinky garbage pail problems. I couldn’t wait to test this DIY Trash Can Deodorizer!
- It was easy to make
- It took the “stink” away
- It was cheap to make
- Few ingredients (tea tree oil and baking soda)
- The smell of Tea Tree Oil
- It is messy when you remove your Trash Bag
- You have to periodically rinse it out and do it over (it takes time)
After mixing up my “stink away” solution I had high hopes that it would work, and be worth my time and effort. (no matter how little that effort may be) Well, I sprinkled it in and waited. I have to say that it worked pretty well. That being said, I am not a huge fan of the scent of Tea Tree Oil. So much to my dismay my kitchen smelled like I was manufacturing tea tree oil! (I think that this would work well with another scent, like Lavender or Lemon oil)
Verdict for the DIY Trash Can Deodorizer:
Because of the messy cleanup every time you remove a trash bag, and the fact that the Tea Tree Oil smell was overwhelming, I was going to give this a Pin-Failed-It. If you like the smell of tea tree oil or use a different scent that is more appealing I feel that this pin would work better and be much easier to live with. But after setting over night the tea tree oil smell had dissipated and I was left with a clean smelling garbage can! Woo Hoo! No more butt crack smelling trash odor!!!
