Eureka!

This was one of those "Why didn't I think of this ten years ago?" moments...

Cleaning out garbage cans is disgusting and gross. Who likes doing that? Who wants to do that? Not me. We try to put grocery sack liners in the garbage cans but it doesn't always happen and then you have who-knows-what in there... gag.

So after I emptied out the dishwasher, I had a flash of brilliance and loaded in the garbage cans. Two of them were too tall to slide under the top rack but I was not to be defeated. I removed the top rack swiftly and let out a triumphant cry! I will win this one! (But who knew that top rack could be so heavy??)

Totally worked. Yes.

You are a smarty pants!!! I was just thinking the other day that I needed to have Kevin clean out the trash cans and even mentioned it to him and he didn't see so excited about it, he'll be excited now. Can't wait to try it. Thanks!

Love this idea! I wish I had small trash cans, so I could actually use this idea.

I just laughed to myself. I barely told Chad that they need to be clean. He will sooo be thanking your brilliant idea.
