Every once and a while all trash pails smell. At one point I decided to make my own pail freshener out of an old spice shaker to fix this, filled with one part baking soda to one part carpet cleaner  detergent. It helped somewhat but didn’t seem to do much. Well, recently I had the chance to try the real thing–an official Shake It Up Pail Freshener from Rockin’ Green in Mighty Mighty Marshmallow. I don’t know what Kim puts in this stuff, but it works a lot better than mine! Could just be straight Rockin’ Green detergent for all I know, but I like it anyway.

People are reporting that they’ve been using their Pail Fresheners on carpet stains, as sachets in drawers to keep them fresh and dry–and especially in kitchen trash cans. I have used mine exclusively in thetrash cans so far, with nice results. It seems to neutralize all  smells most of all, but it’s pretty good at knocking the smell down a notch overall. It’s not total stink removal, but it keeps it in its place. I put some sprinkled over the top of my garbage and also sprinkled a bit in the bottom of the pail under the liner.

Pail Fresheners are designed to work in tandem with your detergent to boost the cleansing capabilities of your detergent (does this mean it contains baking soda? Kim isn’t saying!), so I don’t worry that adding it to my pail will mess up my laundry routine. And the Shake It Up comes in half a dozen of Kim’s most popular detergent scents, so you could get your favorite scent for both the shaker and the laundry or pair Smashing Watermelons with Rage Against the Raspberry, and so on.
