My current one broke. And it had so many crevices that would get dirty and collect little pieces of garbage always. Looking for something very very easy to clean that doesn't have crevices. (Also the cheaper the better). Links would be great

Wow that is a lot of money for a garbage can. And also I can't really tell, but from the pictures they seem to have a lot of crevices for garbage to get stuck. Do you have a specific one you like?

I had a very basic model and cleaning wasn’t a problem as I used liners.

They are practically indestructible as I used mine for a long time and then when I remodeled I had pullout ones installed and I gave away my freestanding one.

I have their mirror which is great because it lights up when it senses yiur face is near. Very Happy

I like simple human and I also have two Kohler cans that I got on amazon for less by buying like new or used.

I like that the liner comes out because I find that being able to shlep the liner around while I clean up is so much easier then holding a garbage bag or pushing the heavy can around the room.

Can you explain this liner to me? I have a simple human can and don’t know what you mean.
Mine is gross I just asked my cleaning lady to clean it 🙈

I don't love love love but it does the trick, if you're looking for a more affordable option.

Even so, the area around that can have crevices that get garbage. Or the bottom.

I used to have a Kohler. It used to get really yucky, stuff would fall down in the crevices.

Now I have a simple Rubbermaid and it has a lift option and under there some crevices that get gross.

I have a Rubbermaid 19gal garbage can. No crevices, step-on pedal to open, and the lid can lock in the open position. It’s great, because my baby can’t open it. I don’t remember where I got it though….for sure online, but evidently not instacart or Amazon. If I find the link for it I’ll send it.

I have it in black. Looks like I got it from Amazon after all!

I stay away from liners, sensors, compressors or anything else that supposed to enhance your trash can.

The simple, smooth plastic, rectangular, not too narrow opening, light colored cans are the best imo. I like on with a lid that goes OVER the edges rather than INSIDE.

I can dunk them in the bathtub and there are no surprise hiding places.

I bought in a local houseware store.

That's the one I have.
. It gets filthy. So much garbage gets stuck in the crevices under the first layer (when you step to open there is another layer where the bag goes) at that layer there are open areas that get so yucky

And now it broke also

Oh :-( I use 13 gallon bags that cover down the front of the garbage can. I don’t have garbage getting stuck in the back….

So do I. I use Costco bags. But there is an area where the bag does not attach to that gets filthy. Not sure what you are doing differently that it doesn't happen

Just get a cheap and cheerful one from Target or Walmart. They get the job done and are easy to keep clean.

I don’t think I’m really doing anything, I just make sure the garbage goes in. But I can totally see how it could get dirty.

I am not understanding the issue.

I line my trash bin with plastic bags that go securely over the rim and a bit more.

There are no "crevices to get particularly dirty.

But like everything in a home - especially kitchens and bathrooms - things do need to be cleaned occasionally

Sometimes something would splash on the exterior and I would spray and wipe it down.

The foot pedal when I had a can that sat in the kitchen would become dirty and so occasionally it would need to be sprayed and wiped off depending on how fastidious I felt about the food pedal.

But the interior of the can never became dirty nor did the rim.

I don't even know where these "crevices" are?
