Reducing the Odor from Food Scraps in Trash
Save your cereal boxes or cake mix boxes and use them to scrape your food off your plates in when cleaning kitchen or doing dishes. That way if your trash starts to stink before you can get it outside to the trash, all you have to do is remove the box, and take it out. I started doing this and usually I end up putting the scrapes into the box and then the box into a plastic grocery bag.
Makes it easier too, not to have food falling out of your trash bag, or leaking into other items while waiting to fill the big can.
