How Can I Make My Garbage Area Smell Like New?

Product & Shopping Questions

Q: I just moved into an apartment, and the area where the trash is stored smells atrocious. I've cleaned it and used natural deodorizers (baking soda, air fresheners, etc.), but the old garbage smell keeps coming back. Does anyone have tips on making this area smell brand new?
