No one likes fishing around in the depths of a garbage can for a bag that’s slipped down, and when you’re dealing with a giant 95 gallon trash can, the job is even harder and messier. These gigantic rubber bands are the answer! They’re so simple, it’s kind of genius:
1. Put your garbage bag into the trash can as you usually do.
2. Check that a few spare inches of bag overhang the lip of the can.
3. Stretch the rubber band around the can’s rim
4. On trash day, take out the bag but keep the rubber band around the trash can, waiting for for the next bag.
That’s all it takes. No more “dumpster diving” into your own garbage can to retrieve slippery bags!
