Odor be gone!

There is always a certain smell around the garbage can no matter how often we take the trash out and how much wiping we do around the can.

I wonder if this Simplehuman activated carbon filter will help at all. I might have to pick a few of these up.

Update: 8/25 – IĀ  bought a pack of these yesterday and they seem to be working good. You have to ensure that the lid of your trash can is a flat surface so the double-sided tape will hold on tight to it.


  1. I actually use my coffee grinds (after brewing) as a garden fertilizer, but I take some of it and pour it over the garbage or over the green garbage (we separate garbage here in Germany šŸ˜‰ ), to prevent funny smells.
    A cup of fresh coffee grinds also soaks up odour in the fridge, by the way.
    And the best — 100% bio-degradable!
