How I Got Rid of the Stink in my Kitchen
How I Got Rid of the Stink in my Kitchen (5 Stars)
I've been composting for some time now but had not gotten around to finding a nice pail for keeping my scraps in. I had just been making use of an old ice cream bucket (you know those plastic ones) but it was cracked and stained and quite honestly... ugly!
The worst part about my old ice cream bucket though was that it was really stinky, especially in the summer when the kitchen is hot. Fruit flies would breed in it and in general it was just yucky.
This pail, however, has been amazing. It's unobtrusive and has charcoal filters which have completely eliminated the stink. It's easy to wash with warm water and soap between dumpings and the filters can easily be replaced. Keeping scraps is much less of an embarrassment and chore now.
If you're looking for a pail for scraps in your kitchen I can't recommend this one enough. It's attractive but not attention grabbing, conquers the odors associated with overripe fruit or onion pieces that some let linger, and holds a lot. It's so sturdy and easy to use I imagine I will have this for the rest of my life.
Notes: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest review.
