Everyday mothers have everyday messes and there is nothing as daunting as a mom than when your kids get into the trash. You know, they pull out all your left over garbage and throw it on the floor, all the wrappers from their snacks and all the papers you stuffed deep down in the trash can so that you were sure they wouldn't be able to find it. This is the life of a mom. I remember once when I went into the kitchen only to find it completely messed up from my 2 year old throwing every single piece of trash on the floor and wondering if they would be sick from eating the left over contents they conveniently wanted to snack on from the garbage bin. Not only that, I remember one day when my daughter would throw unwanted objects like my smart phone, my pens, and living room remote into the trash! This was an even bigger mess because I couldn't find anything.
I knew that I had to do something that day and I'm sure my husband was tired of me complaining about the kids getting into the trash. I prevented that mess! I secured my trash can lid with tape and said, "now try to get into that trash now kiddo!" There is an unwanted anxiety around messes as a mom and although you can't prevent messes that your kids make all the time, you can save yourself some time by making sure they don't get into one of your worse nightmares, the trash can! I mean, who likes to clean up trash! Absolutely no one!
To prevent messes you can look into handy containers that help to do more than just hold your trash bag or contents. Although step-on cans are easy for the kids to get into, there are cans with lid locks. These cans can be difficult for you to open yourself as well. Also, there are motion sensor trash cans that can help to alleviate you having the touch the lids, the only downfall to this is that pets and kids learn how to use these products right away. You want to look for trash cans that have wide lids, are easy to open, but are difficult for a child or pet to get into. These trash cans are normally easy to clean, has enough space for you to throw large amounts of food into the can, and are great for moms with small kids or even adults. Hope you enjoy your clean and spotless kitchen by choosing the right bin.
Consider a can that you can lift.
