Most of my post are about cleaning items in the kitchen and around my home. We spend most of our lives cooking for our families. This post is about cleaning a simple kitchen trash can. Many people have a dirty trash can and they just throw it out in the trash. Normal kitchen trash cans cost around $5 and maybe that is the reason why so many usable items are in the landfills. 

This post shows the five steps for cleaning an ordinary kitchen trash can.

Step 1: Fig.1 show the kitchen trash can being cleaned. This was done using a large laundry sink with soap and a sponge. Fig.2 shows the trash can is being cleaned first on the inside.

Step 2: Fig.3 through fig.5 shows that even though the trash can is clean the shine is gone from its side. Though the trash can is clean it is also dull. A clean white bag will go over its edges and not one will ever know there a dull trash can there.

Step 3: The main reason for cleaning the trash can is to remove dirt and grime. Fig.5 shows the ARMOR ALL Protection that will give the trash can a fighting chance against grime. It provides a protective coat that will repel the grim but will also prevent cracking, fading and discoloration. This will add years of wear and tear to a kitchen trash can. ARMOR ALL also "revitalize vinyl, rubber and plastic parts." #1

Step 4: Fig.6 through fig.8 shows the trash can sides have a polished sided. This job is done and the trash can has a better chance against dirt and grim than a others going to the landfills.
