Dirty Can? Easy Fix

Cleaning Your Outdoor can may seem like a chore, but can actually be done fairly quickly on a nice sunny day

Mix 3/4 cup bleach with 1-gallon warm water and 1 tablespoon powdered laundry detergent

Take your can and a hose with a sprayer attachment somewhere you don’t mind getting wet and soapy, like the lawn or driveway

Pour cleaning solution into can and let sit 15 minutes. Use long-handled scrub brush -like the kind used to wash cars – and use the length to scrub the insides and bottom of the can

Rinse, turn upside down and drain water. Turn right-side up and dry in
sun with lid open

A clean can is a happy can!
