In the kitchen you will be preparing everything that you eat and drink. It is no wonder that we need to have a large trash can inside of this room to contain all of the foods and food containers that need to be thrown away. All of the garbage will collect over time and might even leak to the bottom of the bin.
When this happens it becomes sticky, dirty, smelly, and can be a breeding ground for mold. If you do not clean it at least once a month than you will make yourselves sick and a horrible smell will always be in your kitchen and can spread around to the rest of the home.
The first thing you need to do is to take the bag out and throw it in the large garbage can outside. Now take the trash pail and bring it outside to the driveway. Use the garden hose to rinse it down, inside and out. Once that is done you need to grab a large bucket and fill it with hot water and Lysol or another strong cleaner.
Use a big sponge to wipe down the inside and out of the pail. You want to remove any food particles, stuck on liquids, and mold that has been stuck to it for days or even weeks. Once you are sure that it is completely clean you will need to rinse it off one more time. This will help to remove any leftover particles and soap residue away from it.
You can either leave the clean trash can out on the driveway to dry in the sun or you can use a large towel. Just make sure that it is completely dry so that no more mold will be able to grow all over it. Once that is done you are ready to put it back in the room and it will look like new again.
