"Dry sprinkle the bottom of the rubbish bin with bicarb soda as this will absorb smells."

Trash cans and rubbish bins are among the most useful things you have at home, but they can also become very smelly! Over time, the smell of accumulated and unsegregated garbage will reek and make everything in and around your home smell bad.

For inside trash cans, in the kitchen etc., place some orange peels or fresh mint leaves in the bottom, and change them weekly. You can also use a plastic lined cloth laundry bag in the trash can as it prevents leaks, and is completely washable in the washing machine.
