Kitchen: In every home the busiest place is undoubtedly the kitchen. It is in this place that almost everything is stashed in the kitchen dustbin with products ranging from old cartons to food scraps, tins as well as wrappers. It is only the lady of the house who knows what a mess and smell kitchen bins make. However, nowadays there are easy and simple ways to reduce this.
You must first of all have a good tight fitting lid which really is a must for any kitchen bin. This will help to prevent smells. However the lid does pose other problems.
When we go about with cooking in the kitchen touching the bin is really very unhygienic. Hence instead of washing your hands frequently you should consider having a pedal bin, sensor bin, or even a swing-top. In this case sensor bins are ideal. This is because these dustbins open and shut automatically, sensing when you are near and raising the lid just in time.
Recycling bins: In order to make the job of segregating the different items into different bins, you must consider buying recycling bins.
Many of these recycling bins are color coded so that you can easily separate the waste before putting them into the different recycling repositories kept outside. Also, if you don’t have enough room for different types of bins then you can go in for a double and even a triple compartment recycling bin. These are indeed a convenience and at the same time a space saving method of separating waste.
Bin deodorizers: You must take into consideration the fact that all kitchen bins should be cleaned regularly so as to prevent smells. However, there is still a way of ensuring that your kitchen doesn’t stink of rubbish and that is to use a bin deodorizer. Bin deodorizers go a long way in ensuring that your bin smells fresh and clean – no matter what you have been throwing away.
