Kitchen trash can makes compacting easier

 

Akron Beacon Journal

The TK10 Trash Krusher lets you compact your kitchen trash right in the can.

The kitchen waste receptacle has a compacting plate attached to the lid. You push the plate to compact the trash cleanly so you can fit more trash into a single plastic bag. The plate is held to the lid with magnets and can be cleaned in a sink.

The 10.5-gallon can is made of brushed stainless steel and has a foot pedal and slow-closing lid.

The can is available for $199.99 plus $24.99 shipping and handling at http://trashkrusher.com.

Q&A

Q. I had anise bread in the freezer compartment of a refrigerator in my garage. The freezer stopped working when it got cold, and the bread thawed. Now I can’t get the anise odor out of the refrigerator and freezer. Do you have any suggestions?

I assume you’ve already cleaned the refrigerator and freezer, but you may need to clean them a few times. Be sure to clean everything, including shelves, drawers, gaskets, the drain tube, the drip pan and all the little crevices.

If the odor remains, you can try a strong deodorizing product such as Smells BeGone spray or Odors Away.
