I think garbage cans in Florida, are one of the worst things to keep clean, and sanitized. For years I would individually bag up the garbage, or rubbish as we call it in England, and then put it in the trash can, or dustbin, which is another English word, that is lined with a garbage sack.
Well the garbage sacks, or bags are so expensive, that I told Len this is too much to pay. I didn’t want to keep them any longer for the fear of bacteria forming. So what was I to do.
I looked in the supermarket and came up with Lysol Disinfectant Spray that kills viruses, bacteria, mold & mildew. It kills 99.9% of germs and eliminates odors. The scent I chose was Crisp Linen. This is a huge spray can and weighs in at 19 ounces (l lb. 3 oz.) or 539 g.
The first can I purchased almost a year ago. After cleaning the garbage can, I put a black liner/bag in it and taped it to the edges. I then gave the inside of the can a spray of Lysol, also the lid, and the outside too.
Both Len and I filled the garbage can with our tied bags of rubbish, and out went the trash can twice a week. Each time we brought it in to the garage we sprayed it again, with Lysol. Each month we changed the black sack/liner. So instead of using 8 bags, we only used 1 a month.
The garbage can always smells wonderful, is disinfected, with a beautiful fragrance, and all but .9% of germs are gone
Lysol does so much more too. It states on the can that it kills the flu virus. It kills and prevents mold and mildew on bathroom surfaces, shower curtain liners, sinks, and plastic mattress covers.
It is great for faucets, shower areas, toilet seats, bath tubs, sinks, fridge exteriors, counter tops, as well as, diaper pails, doorknobs, telephones, window sills, and the baby’s plastic toys.
The directions for use differ depending on what you are using it for. Full directions are on the back of the can.
I now have one in the garage for the garbage can, and one upstairs for the bathrooms, and kitchen. Yes, I live in a townhouse, so have one bathroom downstairs, and a complete condo upstairs, see this here.
I know that whatever I touch will be safe. I just spray the area with the Lysol and know that my house is almost free of germs.
Do not use Lysol Disinfectant Spray on wooden surfaces.
The retail price can run from $5.99 to $7.99, but I was lucky enough to pick 2 up this week for $3.99, at Walgreen’s drugstore.
This is a product that saves me time, money, and keeps my home safe.
