This is an additional post in my series on "Greener Cleaners".
I have been frustrated with my smelly diaper pail. I have tried all sorts of thing, but its in like the plastic has absorbed the smell over time. I use Lysol every time I change it, and that chemical smell hangs in the air for hours.
This week I tried something new that I read in this book, Clean House, Clean Planet.
Garbage-Can Deodorizer and Cleaner --
Ingredients: Baking Soda and an essential oil
Mix baking soda with a few drops of an essential oil. I used orange because I already had some on hand, but the book recommends peppermint oil. After cleaning the garbage can, sprinkle on some scented baking soda.
I was amazed at how effective this was at killing the odor entirely. And there is a fresh orange scent every time I dispose of a dirty diaper.
