  1. Great article. I need to be more vigilant about cleaning my trash cans. Last week I had those annoying little flies, because I left the chicken bag in the trash for a few days, before taking it out. Yuck!

  2. It is so easy to forget to remove the bin bags, I make it a habit and it is automatic now! 🙂

  3. When we move a couple of months ago the people who lived here before us left quite a bot of stuff behind. One thing was a really good quality kitchen swing top bin. Lovely I thought, then a few weeks ago, as the weather here warmed up. wondered what the funny smell was. They obviously hadn’t used a bag in the bin previously and right down at the bottom all sorts of sticky scraps were festering in the nooks and crannies. Luckily I was able to give it a good clean out with my steamer and it’s all clean and sweet smelling now.
    I’m also going to try your bicarb of soda trick too. thanks.

  4. I am glad you got that mess cleaned up from the previous owners of the bin! Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment 🙂

  5. Oh. I agree!! I am especially careful every fall, as that is when the mice seem to consider a visit at our house.

    Thanks for linking up at Tuesday Talk this week!

    I hate the thought of any nasties in my home, especially flies. Bin bag out into rubbish bin and hands thoroughly washed afterwards. I am a bit OCD on hand washing after touching bins, and make sure the rest of the family follow suit.

  10. LOL I am just a bit OCD with a lot of things!
