You’ll only be needing a cotton ball and some essential oils. All you have to do is soak the cotton ball into the essential oil of your choice and simply drop it into the trash bin. Throw it in before you replace the plastic so that it will be underneath the bin liner, Soak it well and it will be good for a couple of days.
When choosing the essential oil that you will use, it would be good to opt for scents of lemon, lemongrass and tea tree because they have anti-bacterial properties that could help your trash bin to be free of bacteria.
On the other hand, eucalyptus oil repels bugs and insects and is very ideal when your trash bins contain rotten food, left-overs and fruits.
