 Fabuloso® Spring Cleaning
Spring is here and that means that spring cleaning season is in full swing. I think spring cleaning means different things to different people, but to me it means tackling those jobs you have been putting off for a while – like cleaning behind the fridge, cleaning/organizing under the sink – all the things we don’t really want to do. It makes things easier when you have one all purpose cleaner that can tackle lots of these jobs. Sooooo, that’s why I headed to Walmart to pick up Fabuloso® Multi-purpose Cleaner Lavender.

One of the jobs I don’t look forward to doing is cleaning our garbage cans. I mean – these are the things that hold GARBAGE, so they can be kind of gross. What is even more gross is NOT cleaning them, so I took on this task with Fabuloso®. For spring cleaning, Fabuloso fits right in because it features the flowers of spring in both Fabuloso® Multipurpose Cleaner Lavender and Fabuloso® Multipurpose Cleaner Limited Edition Spring Bloom. I chose lavender because I have always loved that scent.

How to Clean Your Kitchen Garbage Can

Cleaning my garbage cans ended up being a much easier job than I had anticipated now that I had come up with an easier “plan of action”. Since the weather was nice, I was able to work outside, rather than worrying about sloshing water around my kitchen. Plus, I always like any excuse to get outside!

I headed out our back door with my garbage cans, Fabuloso®, a sponge and a bucket of hot water. To clean the can, I first poured in some Fabuloso®. Then I added the hot water and sloshed it around, using the sponge to tackle any difficult parts. After the cleaning, I rinsed the can with another bucket of plain water. Yes – it was as easy as that sounded. I now have a nice, sparkling, fresh smelling garbage can!

Now that my garbage cans are nice and sparkly thanks to Fabuloso®, I’m ready to take on the rest of my spring cleaning!

  1. I think cleaning the trash can is one of those things that no one wants to do. Kind of up there with cleaning the toilet.

  2. Our trash can is trashed! We spent some money on it before we move I will be doing this so that it is clean in the new home.

  3. I need this in my life! Our garbage cans outside are the worst but I am too cheap to replace them if they are still good why bother if you can clean them up?

  4. Great tips, I don’t like to clean either but with Fabuloso® and some music it is a lot easier. #client

  5. Thanks for the tips. Anything to help with the smelly trash is good!

  6. This is a great idea! We always have to much trash and so I am cleaning the cans all the time. I have never tried this before. Will have to look into it!
