Sooner or Later, All Trashcans Get Smelly

It is inevitable that your kitchen trashcan will begin to acquire odors – it just happens. And a day finally comes along when you open it up and – Ugh!  That thing stinks! If the odor from your kitchen trashcan has gotten so that it smells bad even after taking out the trash and installing a new liner, then it’s time to freshen your trash can. Nok-Out or SNiPER are up to the job and can help you get rid of kitchen trashcan odor.

What You Will  Need

Either Nok-Out or SNiPER

cleaning rags

scrub brush/ scrub pad

bowl of warm water with a couple of drops of Dawn (or other degreaser)

you may want to wear rubber gloves when cleaning the interior

Which One to Use – Nok-Out or SNiPER?

Nok-Out will safely remove the odor from your kitchen trashcan and leave it with no odor at all.  Which is the way it should be – no odor!  SNiPER will also remove the odor and will work to get rid of the microbes that are often the cause of odor in the first place.  SNiPER or Nok-Out are perfect for use in your kitchen and inside your home because they are  not harsh chemical cleaners that leave toxic residues behind.  You can use either one knowing that your home will be pristine clean!

Let’s Get Rid of That Odor The Easy Way

First off, it is a good idea to take the trashcan to a worktable and turn it on it’s side. This makes it easier to work on. Remove the liner and anything else that can be removed and take a look. Find the places where there is crud stuck to the walls or top – those are the places to start working. Wet one of your rags in the soapy water and wipe down the entire interior being sure to thoroughly wet any stuck-on gunk to soften it up. If it doesn’t wipe clean easily, use the scrub brush (or scrub pad) and scrub away all the stuck-on matter. Treat the exterior the same as the interior, taking care not to scratch any surface.

Don’t forget the lid! Both the inside and outside probably need some love too.

When the trash can is clean – inside and out – wipe the entire thing down with a dry rag. Apply SNiPER or Nok-Out by spraying a light coat until all the surfaces are thoroughly wet. You may want to use a small piece of paper towel to smear it around making sure that all surfaces are uniformly wet. Again, don’t forget the bottom of the lid. Allow it all to dry.

Plastic absorbs odors more than stainless steel so if your trashcan is plastic, you should give it the “nose test” to see if it needs a second application 

Is Your Trashcan Hidden Behind a Cabinet Door?

It certainly gives your kitchen a clean look when the trashcan is hidden behind a cabinet door (as in the photo above).  But if it is closed off this way, you will likely need to spray the walls ceiling and floor with Nok-Out or SNiPER because odors will cling to them as well as to you trashcan.  Just give them a spray, wipe if needed, then spray again and allow it to dry with the door open.

Best Odor Control for carpet

Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

Aviary Parasites

I wrote Ted about parasites in my Pigeon coop: ” I’ve used Sniper for parvo elimination before but I wanted to know if it would kill tricomoniasis parasites in a pigeon coop.” Ted wrote back that he wasn’t sure whether Sniper would kill it, but that Sniper is known to kill giardia – another parasite – so he thought maybe it might, and for sure, it wouldn’t harm any of my birds. I want to tell you that I did use Sniper in my pigeon coop and it seems that it did the trick! No further illnesses after spraying down my coop a couple of times!
We also recently had a partial basement flood. We had cat litter and poop, rabbit poop etc sitting in the water for more than 24 hours. Once we removed the water my basement smelled like a zoo! I sprayed Sniper everywhere using a fogger and all I can say is WOW! My husband had doubts that the smell would go away.

Thank you Sniper!

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

I Am Amazed at The Results!

I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!

Rotten Potato Smell Gone!

There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.

Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor

I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.
