The TikTok user known as The House for Hosting has done us all a favor by revealing a simple hack for a fresher-smelling garbage can. All you’ll need are two items: felt pads and your choice of essential oils. According to the video, you’ll need two felt pads per trash can. Once you’ve added a few drops of essential oil (they did about six), you can stick them inside the can around the upper edge. After you’ve finished, you can then insert a garbage bag, and you won’t have to replace the pads for about a month.
This hack is starting to gain popularity, with over 200 likes, 41 shares, and a few comments stating how great people think the idea is. Users like Melindamontlavo39 thanked the creator for making the video and said they think it’s a “perfect idea.” Others were just downright amazed by this hack, with Susie33 calling it “so clever.”
