How to get rid of garbage smells from outdoor containers

Do your eyes tear up whenever you walk by your outdoor trash bins? Even cleaning with powerful cleaners and a scrub brush hasn’t done the trick? You’ve got an embedded odor problem on your hands.

Don’t worry. This often happens with plastic and metal garbage, recycling and compost bins. No need to go out and buy a new one. And don’t bother trying to solve the problem with regular household cleaners; they’re not up to the task.

What you need is our Purodora Lab Garbage Bin & Container Cleaner & Odor Neutralizer. It will keep all your outdoor waste bins sparkling clean and smelling great – even during those hot summer months when smells can really intensify.

How to get rid of garbage smells in outdoor bins

As outdoor garbage, recycling and compost cans fill up, it’s only normal for them to emit odors as the organic waste inside them decomposes. Regularly emptying and cleaning the bin usually keeps these odors under control.

It’s when the odors seep into the bin’s porous plastic that the real trouble begins. Exterior garbage bins are made to withstand rain, water and direct sunlight, but their plastic or metal material is very porous. And that makes them prone to absorbing odors.

At this point, you need to neutralize ALL of the odor-causing molecules that have become embedded in the material. Otherwise, the garbage smell will only get worse over time.

Only an odor neutralizer that works on a molecular level can get rid of embedded odors.

To eliminate garbage odors from your outdoor bins, simply follow the steps below.

  1. Empty the trash, recycling or compost bin.
  2. Rinse the bin with water to remove any residue at the bottom.
  3. Spray the entire inside of bin (including lid) with Purodora Lab Garbage Bin & Container Cleaner & Odor Neutralizer and scrub with a long-handled brush.
  4. Rinse the container with clean water and dry with a clean rag.
  5. Respray the inside of the bin (including lid) with Garbage Bin & Container Cleaner & Odor Neutralizer. Do not rinse off. Leaving the product on will allow the odor-neutralizing molecules to penetrate deep into the pores of the plastic or metal. It will not degrade the material.

And that’s all you have to do – no more garbage smell! Simply repeat the treatment as often as needed.
