Okay, nothing earth shattering here, but still a tip just the same. I like to change my dish towel and cloth every day. I also can't stand to see a dirty kitchen trash can. So what I do is every morning, I get up, take my kitchen cloth, wipe the outside of the trash can down. Then I toss the cloth along with yesterday's dish towel(s) into the wash. I finish up with spraying the can with a bleach spray. It's simple....but it Works For Me!!!
